You may have noticed the “Public Bikes” scattered across Vilamoura? These are operated by Inframoura and are an ideal way to beat the traffic in the summer. There are currently 37 stations and over 200 bikes covering the Vilamoura area with more stations on the way. They are a great example of Vilamoura ´s commitment to creating a “national quality of life reserve”. To use the bikes however, a card is required from Inframoura. These cards are only available to property owners here in Vilamoura. In some cases your hotel or accommodate on can provide a card for use.

White Bikes

Local Transport | 29 September 2014

 Vilamoura has both a mild climate and a flat landscape so it is the ideal place to use bicycles for travelling around.
The Public Bikes - Fondly referred to as the “White Bikes” are now in their third year and have been a welcome addition to Vilamoura. The shared bike system offers pollution free convenience and reduces traffic, not to mention the obvious health benefits in encouraging people to be more active. 

The bicycles are designed exclusively for Vilamoura and are manufactured using 
materials of the highest quality and safety standards. They were specifically made for ease of handling and convenience.The network covers the whole of Vilamoura, 
both its business/tourist and residential areas, and the system is designed to allow users to rent bicycles and return them to any station, therefore avoiding the need to go to a central point to collect or return them. There are over 
35 stations spread across Vilamoura with over 200 bikes available for use.

The Public Bikes, operated by Inframoura, are currently available only to property owners and customers of Inframoura. Some hotel receptions may also have cards available for you to use.

next to the Police station
