There are free bikes available by the municipality (called BiCas), you just have to go early to get one.

You have cycle paths from the area of your hotel to Guincho (beach) area.

The hospital it's outside town, close to the a comercial area. There are buses (Scotturb) line 411 and 417 from Cascais, and I'm sure that taxis will be available there also.
