Bike rider Casco Viejo Panma – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingOn Sundays, a couple of lanes in Panama City are designated for bikers only.

Many people use bikes in Casco Viejo but because this is an old place, there are no bike lanes. You will only find bike lanes in the Cinta Costera (bottom photo). They have built a designated area for bikes over there.

There are people who have mountain bikes but to do that, you have to go to hilly places. Mountain bikers usually take their cars to go to hills. Some take buses although I am not sure how they manage to get the bike on the bus, but they just get off at the destination and bike from there to the hills.

Panamá doesn´t have the custom like Europe, or even the United States of America, of regular biking.  In Panama, biking is more like a sport that you can practice mainly at Ft. Amador, also known as the "causeway".  There, you can either bring your own bike, or rent one for a couple of hours and enjoy the breeze and the beauty of this place by the ocean.
 
Many people have mountain bikes to use on their trips to the country.  Bikes in the city are mainly used by messengers, even though more and more motorcycles are being used now for this purpose.
 
Locals do a lot of walking... or driving.
