Cycling in Riga

Riga is flat, quiet, and very green - these are only three things that make it a paradise for cyclists looking to discover a new city.

Cycle Paths/Routes:

The old but still good path to Jurmala beach resort; the new riverside development allowing you to cycle beside the river.

Attractions/sights accessible by bicycle from the city centre:

Jurmala Beach Resort (1.5h), Mežaparks (50m), Vecaki Beach (1.5h), Open Air Ethnographic Museum (1h).

Mayor's stance on cycling:

He thinks he is doing a great job, but in reality knows little about cycling and the new cycling infrastructure is not very good.




Mainly Flat

Bicycle theft:

Happens occasionally

Cycling at night:
