Bicycle hire offers the chance to explore Torrevieja and its surrounds without having to keep up with the traffic. This is especially appealing to foreign visitors not confident driving a car or riding a scooter in Spain. It can be very daunting for some having to drive on the ‘wrong’ side of the road, especially during peak summer traffic. Riding a bike allows you to choose your own pace and enjoy the surrounding scenery. Bicycle hire is also a lot cheaper than hiring a car and helps you work off those excess holiday calories 🙂

Bike Riding Routes
When choosing your bicycle hire, consider where you may want to go during your stay. Unless you purely want to just ride around the city, it’s best to hire a mountain bike. Torrevieja has a lovely long beach promenade. This extends from the marina and all the way to the end of Los Locos Beach. For the more adventurous there is a picturesque coastal path. The path runs along the coast to and through the Orihuela Costa coastal areas. The natural park around Torrevieja Salt Lake provides both nature trails and a pleasant ‘Greenway’.
