I don’t recommend riding a bicycle in the city of Managua to anyone. It is physically dangerous. There are no bike lanes. No one has any regard for anyone. Almost every bad accident scene has a motorcycle crumpled up underneath a big 18-wheeler they didn’t see.
Over in the beach area, about an hour away, it’s different. They have mountain bikes for rent out here for those who take long excursions. The place for bike riding is basically on a dirt road back out to the highway.
People do ride bikes outside of your property as well. It’s all flat down here at the ocean, so you get higher elevation as you get further away. So you are riding uphill, 11 kilometers (6.8 miles) back up to the highway or you are riding downhill 11 kilometers back to the ocean. There are a couple of young people who do it. One guy I know says he does it every day.
You can ride ride around in Gran Pacifica and never leave the property. I’ve got a little 50 cc Suzuki scooter that I fire up and ride a couple of times a week. No more bike-riding for me. I save my strength for golf.
