Riding a bicycle is a great, environmentally conscious way to explore a city. However, some cities are more equipped to accommodate bicyclists than others. If you’re interested in bike riding while traveling, check out one of these cities.

 

Amsterdam 

Amsterdam is known for its cycling culture. Visitors will see people of all ages riding bikes as their primary mode of transportation. There are hundreds of miles of biking paths throughout the city. Bike rentals cost about $11 or check with your hotel. Many properties offer on-site bike rentals.

 

Portland, Oregon 

The eco-conscious city makes biking easy for locals and visitors. Portland offers a comprehensive map (https://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/39402) of bike trails in and around the city. Utilize the city’s bike share program, BikeTown (https://www.biketownpdx.com/#), during your visit.

 

Rio De Janeiro 

Rio De Janeiro introduced a bike share program bringing more than 600 bikes to 60 stations throughout the city. There are plenty of scenic cycling routes into the hills for prime views of the city.

 

Tokyo 

This bustling city may seem overwhelming for cyclists. However, there are plenty of bike paths and parking. Tour companies throughout the city offer bike tours to get a better look at Tokyo’s attractions.

Hiking can be tedious and tiring or even uncomfortable for those not around nature as much. To bypass many of the things that can go wrong while hiking, it’s best to have a definitive list of hiking products that will help any situation. Hiking is a great activity to share with family or friends because it bonds people together through nature.

Dream Hollywood Hotel

The urban chic hotel is the perfect medium between Hollywood hip and corporate cool. Dream Hollywood welcomes you upon arrival with an open glass entryway, showcasing a structured, organically lush lobby atmosphere filled with modern art and a lobby lounge bar that transforms for a morning cup of coffee or a post-work cocktail. Upon check-in with the extremely helpful and courteous staff, I made my way to the elevators and up to my room, enjoying the artwork on the way.

If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
