What you'll do
It‘s not even necessary to leave Lisbon to find the first bike resort: Monsanto Park, one of Europes biggest city forests, is nothing less then a huge bike park! Who doesn‘t have time or energy to ride a full day in Sintra, still got a quicker mountainbike option in Lisbon. The huge Monsanto Park in the west of the city provides nature, great views and tails for all skills without leaving the city. We start our ride in the city center but reach unpaved pathes after only half an hour. Through a natural forest with uncountable double- and singletracks we climb up to an abandend Spa Resort which offers one of the best view to Lisbon. After a fun, but not to complicated downhill we reach the riverside near Belem and return to the city comfortable on a cycling lane while passing by the monuments of Belem and several others of Lisbons highlights. The huge park offers plentiful MTB possibilities as you would never expect them so near. Combined with impressive views this 3 hours are a quick escape that can easily turn into one of the highlights of your time in Lisbon.
I degreed in Tourism Management and lived in several European and South American countries. I travelled more than 20 countries by bike. When finally came the time to settle down, I moved to Portugal in 2012. Since that I cycle Lisbon everyday and discover Portugal whenever I can. Come and join me in my favourite parts of Lisbon!

Where you'll be
As a little warm up we cross the city center. Not as a sightseeing tour, but as a way to our destination Monsanto Park. Through unpaved roads we climb to the amazing 360° view at Panoramico de Monsanto. This is where the action part starts: The way down will challenge our bike skills a bit with some smooth singletracks. Once we are back sea level we roll back along the river passing by the monuments of Belem and undercrossing 25th April bridge.
