SMART BIKES & VDL CAR HIRE SERVICE

Discover Vale do Lobo or the Algarve and create your own special journey by renting bikes from the VDL Car Hire office.

Bikes are available to be rented by the hour, day or for longer periods to suit your needs.

With hundreds of kilometres of paths to follow you are spoiled for choice in the Algarve and can explore the region at your own pace, taking in the sights that most appeal to you. Bikes are hired with a safety helmet and a security lock.

Smart Bikes also have come to Vale do Lobo with InfraLobo launching a new electric bike sharing service at various locations around the resort.

The environmentally friendly bikes can be found at the Parque do Golfe, by the Praça, at the Vale do Lobo Tennis Academy and at the Pingo Doce supermarket at the entrance to the resort.

The idea behind the bikes is to encourage visitors, property owners and guests to travel between key areas of the resort using this green solution. Not only should this help to cut down on car and bus use but it will also help to control parking levels.

To use the bikes there is an app available for download where you can register, unlock your bike, keep track of your rides and check on bike availability at the different stations. Users can alternatively sign up to use the bikes online.

VALE DO LOBO CYCLING EXPERIENCE
MTB VDL TO FARO 35K

Twice a month, Vale do Lobo invites its owners, guests and general public to discover the wonderful trails between Vale do Lobo and the Faro island.

Whenever possible, avoiding the road, this stretch of about 35 km (going and back) is highly marked by the surrounding nature. Always with the Ria Formosa on the horizon, on the way to Faro beach it is possible to catch a glimpse of different species of birds, salt pans and even the activity of harvesting live bivalve molluscs (clams, oysters, cockles). The low rhythms of this tour, allow that during this physical activity, participants can be intimately connected and attentive to the culture and tradition, so present and marked in the Ria Formosa and on the Faro island. This experience starts at the resort reception and lasts 3 hours (approximate average time). 



Bicycles must be provided by the user, but if you do not have your own bicycle, you should rent it at the reference store in Vale do Lobo - VDL Car Hire, on the previous day. We recommend the use of a helmet, as well as a water-filled dispenser so you can hydrate yourself on the way. The sunscreen is essential to be applied before the experience, to avoid sunburn during the activity.

Vale do lobo has partnerships with external guide companies for road bike or MTB tours (adventure).
