Beirut: Cycling - Mountain Biking
Paris of the Middle East
Cycling in Beirut is extremely risky, due to poor road standards, heavy traffic and very aggressive drivers. If you are feeling particularly brave, it is possible to hire a bike to get around Beirut, but it is unsafe for cyclists in general. The company “Beirut by Bike” offer cycle hire in Beirut, starting at €2.5 per hour, or €10 per day. Cycling in Lebanon's rural areas is a much safer and more exciting option.
