World Bike Tour takes thousands of cyclists to the riverside area

23, August 2018

The ninth edition of the World Bike Tour took place this morning, along the riverside area of the capital, between Belém and Terreiro do Paço. Supported by the municipality, the bike tour - "with no competitive goals" - gathered around four thousand participants.

The "exceptional weather conditions" led to the organization of the World Bike Tour to "decrease the time of sun exposure" before the departure in Praça do Império by reducing the route - from 12 to 7 km -, eliminating the climb of Avenida da Liberdade.
