Un paseo en bicicleta por el Tajo (A bike ride by River Tagus)

On two wheels.

Admittedly, Lisbon's downtown narrow, winding streets, with its steep slopes are not the ideal scenario to bike around the city. Conversely, River Tagus banks offer ideal biking tracks. Exercising is always recommended and even more so if you fall for Portuguese cuisine delicacies. For three years, the bike path marching along river for nearly seven miles has made it very easy to shed off some weight. The road stretches from the Cais de Sodre to Belém, a journey to appreciate how the city is evolving (old warehouses converted into trendy terraces) and adorned with Pessoa poems. Upon reaching Belém, there is a large park to rest your weary bones (full of picnicking families on weekends) and regain strength with one of the typical cakes. There are several bike rental places near the train station such as Bike Iberia (Largo Corpo Santo, 5).
