Even though other countries such as Holland, among others in Europe and Asia offer special programs and streets for bikes, and a bike is used in these places more for a transportation than for outdoor exercising, Panamá offers wonderful and interesting places for biking.
Let's begin with the "cinta costera", a beautiful boulevard by the bay in the city of Panamá, where locals and visitors enjoy an everyday relaxing place to walk, jog, skate or biking. There are many non profits that organize "walkatons" in this area and other activities that involves biking.
It is very common to see professional bikers at the " Carretera Interamericana" (Interamerican Highway), going from the city to the "interior" (the countryside). There are many hills that bikers enjoy. One of the preferred places is Campana, a beautiful place with an outstanding ocean view.
Bicycle riders also love to go to the causeway (Ft. Amador). Either they carry their own bicycle, or they rent one in site. Because the causeway is surrounded by the ocean on two sides, the path is very enjoyable. The causeway is located at the entrance of the Panamá Canal, on the Pacific side.
If you are really adventurous, you may want to continue to other provinces, and go across the country.
Many biking international events are celebrated here in Panamá during the year.
