Park E Bike electric bicycle rentals and tours are all about offering cyclists and non-cyclists alike the unique opportunity and the freedom to silently explore the undiscovered in one of the most charismatic locations in southern Europe.
One of of goals is to really promote clean, sustainable transport that is viable to all types of travelers visiting the UNESCO heritage site of Sintra: e-Bikes! On a recent Park E Bike day trip a client told us that in the 5 years he has lived in Portugal he had never seen so much of Sintra as on his e-bike day trip: "I love the sense of freedom, there were things I had never even noticed".

We make sure our E-bikes are perfectly suited to a broad range of people, from the expert cyclist to the occasional bicycle rider to ensure maximum comfort, enjoyment and fun on our e-bike tours and rentals. With powerful electric motors and a long range battery, you can explore from the forests to the Atlantic ocean and cycle back on a single charge.
All the Park E Bike staff are locals, and we want to preserve the natural allure of Sintra by helping visitors tread lightly along the small roads and lanes, as they discover a world class travel destination. Come and join us!
If you are visiting Sintra or have friends on their way, do everyone a real favour and ask them to leave their car at home. Parking is expensive and sparse and the old streets were not designed with vehicles other than horse carriages in mind.
Sintra: a UNESCO World Heritage site, one of the most attractive royal towns in Portugal and certainly one of the most popular destinations.
When the monarchs first put Sintra on the map, in their bid to escape the summer heat of Lisbon, cars were not even a distant dream - today they can be a real world nightmare in the town center.
If you are visiting from Lisbon for the day, consider taking a train to Sintra and going on foot instead of driving.
If walking is not your favorite thing, you can always take the 434 bus to visit the beautiful Pena Palace and Moorish castle. Be warned that in summer time the 434 bus queue can be such that some visitors have to wait for the next bus.
Without any doubt though, the most environmentally conscious way to explore is on foot.
But the most enjoyable way to cover the distance between the parks and palaces is by bicycle! With an electric assisted E-bike, you get the all the fun and freedom of cycling without the effort of pedal pushing up the hills of Sintra, and you will have no trouble at all to find parking. Enjoy!
