Bicycle hire in Orihuela Costa is a fun and economical way to get about. It also offers the chance to top up the tan and get a bit of exercise. Depending on your choice of bike, there are many nature trails and coastal paths to be explored. Neighbouring Torrevieja also has a picturesque ‘Greenway' that runs next to the salt lake and natural park. These are a clever idea to make use of the country's disused railway lines. The majority of Greenways in Spain are open to hikers, cyclists and horses. They are a pleasure to ride being predominantly flat.
Bicycle hire in Orihuela Costa is a great way to get to the beach for holidaymakers staying in the inland residential areas. Parking is never a problem so long as you have a handy lamp post or street sign to padlock your bike to. Some of the Orihuela Costa beaches have allocated bike parking. This is also the case with the larger shopping centres such as Zenia Boulevard. The area has a network of canals popular with cyclists. The service roads running alongside are tarred and flat, making them perfect for those doing a bit of racing bike training.
