Það sem verður gert

During the day Alfama and Mouraria are so crowded and busy. This time of the day is different. Traffic calms down after rush hour and the cooler evening hours allow us to climb a few more hills. The narrow lanes with thousand years of history turn into a perfect scenery.

We start this ride at the riverside. Through the most ancient parts of Lisbon we cycle up to Graca and one of the most stunning sunset views in town.
While going down again we cross neighborhoods that show us all the diversity of Lisbon: Traditional Portuguese life, mixes up with the smell of indian curry, brasilian livelyness and african rhythms. Around Arroios, Anjos and Intendente Lisbon shows us some it's thousand faces.

After a second climb at Jardim do Torel we reach a new view. This time surrounded by the very different vibe of a diplomatic neighborhood. The well deserved second downhill leads us back to Baixa, the commercial downtown, and along the river back to our meeting point

On the way we find plenty of Lisbons culinary diversity: Let yourself be surprised by the plentiful shades and tastes Lisbon unites since the time of the big discoveries.
Other things to note
Cycling in the dusk and dark becomes automatically a bit more complex. That's why this ride is recommended for everyone who is feeling comfortable on a bike. All others find easier rides in my profile

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!

Staðsetning

Lisbon gets an extra portion of charm once the sun goes down.
This ride is to discover the oldtown by sunset and night: The stunning views from the famous view points at Alfama, the narrow lanes, old tiles and portugese lifestyle at Mouraria and the multicultural roots in vibrant Anjos and Intendente.

This was an incredible way to get our first glimpse at Lisbon. We would have never thought do bike by sunset/night for site seeing and cultural education, but it ended up being one of the best posible ways to do those activities. It wasn’t crowded, the weather was nice, the sites were still totally visible and stunning, and it was a fun way to spend a night!

Simon’s night bike tour of Lisbon was fantastic. Lisbon isn’t the easiest city to bike, with hills, cobblestones, trolley tracks... but Simon made it comfortable and put together a fantastic route that provided some fun challenges but even better rewards, and was way better than if I had tried to bike around on my own. Definitely not a bike tour for beginners, but if you’re a comfortable biker and the idea of a bit of work is more your speed than a large group e-bike tour, I’d highly recommend the tour.
