Realizing that with its monuments, the seaside forts, the numerous gardens, unique history dating as far back as the Roman presencen in the peninsula, and distinct present-day flair, Porto is far more than the “second largest city after Lisbon”, but rather an interesting destination ranking high in the ‘quality of life’ scale.
Understanding the impact the industrial and mercantile activity in the city and region’s development, now relocated but with visible evidences of its presence on sides of the Douro river.
Comparing the Porto of today – a vibrant city filled with creative minds and energy – against the backdrop of life under the dictatorship (till 1974) and a couple other absolutist regimes in previous centuries. At the end of our biketour we will bike back to our shop in Rua de Cedofeita, right in the historic centre, in time for a well deserved meal or Porto tonic! (not included)

There’s something we’d like to share with you: it is not so safe or comfortable to ride a bicycle downtown Porto… During the day you may have to face crowds and dense traffic, including the not so attentive drivers. You’ll also earn a free unsolicited massage from riding up and down those steep cobblestoned streets of historic centre…
To avoid all that, we’ll take you outside the city centre, where there’s numerous possibilities for those who just want relaxed bike ride with a touch of fun!Book now!
