The hilly, narrow cobbled lanes of old town Porto may seem at first unsuitable for cycling, however, cyclists seem to be everywhere in Porto. Drivers are well used to people riding bikes on the road and occasionally will give you a polite beep on the horn to let you know they acknowledge you. There are also great dedicated traffic-free cycle routes following flatter terrains on either side of the river extending well out of the centre of the city. Cycling in Porto is actually one of the most enjoyable ways to explore this scenic part of Portugal.

On the southern side of the Douro River, there are miles of coastal cycle paths. The series of traffic-free lanes start on the riverfront west of the Port lodges, beyond the Ponte da Arrábida bridge by the pleasant marina area. The path follows the Douro River into its estuary and nature reserve before turning south to follow the coast. The cycle paths run more or less unbroken 20km, all the way to Espinho on roadside cycle paths or wooden beach boardwalks. This course passes the beaches of Lavadores, Canidelo, Valadares, Francelos, Senhor da Pedra, Aguda, Granja and Espinho. The Aveiro urban railway line is never too far away and since it's allowed to carry bicycles on trains, finishing a day's cycle ride by returning to Porto by train makes an ideal day out.
