Lisbon’s Off-Road Trails and City Sightseeing
A bike ride is an excellent orientation to Lisbon and its sites, as seen from vantage points shared by few. We’ll begin our tour with a warm up ride through Lisbon’s downtown area until we reach Monsanto Park, aptly known as Lisbon’s lungs.
Monsanto Park offers a great variety of off-road options through the wooded hills over paths with options of single-track, gravel and dirt forest tracks that at times can be rocky and/or muddy. There are frequent, but short climbs.
We will circumnavigate the park, with great views of Lisbon, we will then descend towards the Tagus River to the Belem Quarter with its amazing heritage. Once in Belem, we will continue along Lisbon’s new waterfront bike lane, enjoying some great views at a relaxed pace.
