Cycle Hire Shops in Lagos/ Cycle paths?

Looking to hire a Mountain Bike for a few days in Lagos, are there any cycle routes suitable for Mountain Biking around ? Also any cycle shops with a good reputation and decent bikes to hire out? Thanksx

The only designated cycle path I know is the coastal Ecovia.

But if you head out of town in any direction, especially north, you will soon be in the countryside. The roads are generally quiet and you can head off along various tracks etc. It's nice around the big lake to the north of town, check Google Maps etc.

Take a puncture repair kit!

Cycle Paths??? Here??? ROFL!

With the exception of the one poor one that threads along Meia Praia and through Duna Douradas..nothing.

I know, I bike here!

Be very careful on the main roads.

On Wednesday, a group of serious tourist type bikers managed to get into the "Seagulls" roundabout without being sure where they were heading! It was chaos and how no one got knocked off I do not know.

With the exception of the above and the wide walkway along the river, Lagos is NOT bicycle friendly!

hahhaha funny talk

lagos is not friendly?

ok... 50% i could agree with you! there are no special roads for bikes like i see in others countries... but if you know how to drive a bicicle and know the rules you have no problem! I know.... i drive around lagos and surroundigs, i've 28 years old...never had an accident, maybe im just too cautious .... but hey, i dont have dampers beside my body!!!

Well, I admit I am somewhat older than you and I am partial to keeping my body intact! ;)))))
