Vilamoura has both a mild climate and a flat landscape so it is the ideal place to use bicycles for travelling around.THE PUBLIC BIKES - Fondly referred to as the “White Bikes” are now in their third year and have been a welcome addition to Vilamoura.
The shared bike system offers pollution free convenience and reduces traffic, not to mention the obvious health benefits in encouraging people to be more active.
The bicycles are designed exclusively for Vilamoura and are manufactured using materials of the highest quality and safety standards. They were specifically made for ease of handling and convenience.The network covers the whole of Vilamoura, both its business/tourist and residential areas, and the system is designed to allow users to rent bicycles and return them to any station, therefore avoiding the need to go to a central point to collect or return them. There are over
35 stations spread across Vilamoura with over 200 bikes available for use.
The Public Bikes, operated by Inframoura, are currently available only to property owners and customers of Inframoura. Some hotel receptions may also have cards available for you to use.
