“Rent a Bike Ideal to get on a train to Sintra or a tram around Lisbon, use a funicular or a taxi, with a Brompton you won't avoid enjoying your life because of your bike, since it always fits any luggage compartment. You can go inside any monument, a restaurant or even leave the bike in the comfort of your own room without concerns so you don't even need to carry a locker. Because they allow the best rides around the city or even long tours towards other destinations, we only rent Brompton bikes because they are the most robust, yet versatile folding bikes.”
