Is Panama city a bike friendly city?!

Hi there!

I plan to stay w/ a friend in Panama city for a week in Feb., and was wondering how easy or difficult will be to bike around the city, if I can find a place to rent me a bike?!

Thanks!

Panama is most definitely NOT a bike friendly city. The only places you can ride a bike safely are on designated bike/running paths on the causeway to Amador and the Cinta Costera. There is a bike rental shop by the Amador causeway.

Hard to imagine a less bike friendly city.

Hahahaha well i agree ! But if u like biking u can still manage to do a lil biking at the coastway which is in fort amador near the americas bridge... They have bike rentals and lanes just for bikes and it has a very nice view. Here a link tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g294480-d3…

Hope it helps!

Really bad idea. Traffic is lethal. A gringo pedaling a bike..pure gravy for thieves.

Provided there is anything left of the gringo roadkill for the thieves to pick over.
