Intro

Do you enjoy cycling? If so, when you visit Porto, be sure to explore the various cities you will pass through on two wheels. Not only Porto, but also the region's other cities, are becoming increasingly eco-friendly and offering special routes, the so-called cycle paths, for people who travel by bicycle.


It's a new way to explore the city you are going to visit, where you can equally take a trip through the city or, for example, in a park or at the seaside. We present you with some routes in Porto.

Ribeira da Granja: from the Park to Calém (4.5 km)


Following the east entrance of Parque da Cidade, this route passes along the Boavista and Marechal Gomes da Costa avenues, to enter Serralves and Parque da Pasteleira. The Calém garden is on the far side, inside the Aves do Douro Observatory.

City Park (9.8 km)


Within the 83 hectares of this park, there are almost 10 km of cycle routes. The roads, either paved or gravel, have vertical signage that informs users that the cycle lanes are shared with pedestrians.

On the outskirts of town (1.2 km)

Between 2009 and 2011 a bike path that connects the Rua de Teodoro de Sousa Maldonado and the Estrada Interior da Circuvalação was built. It is wide enough for traffic in both directions and boasts a red tarmac floor.

From Boavista to the sea (1.7 km)


From the Castelo do Queijo roundabout, following the Avenida da Boavista, this cycle path connects the Estuary cycle path, the Parque da Cidade and the Ribeira river mouth to Granja.

University Route (3 km)


The various faculties of the Asprela Campus and the Hospital São João are connected via a cycle path.
