Cycling in Vilnius

Is Vilnius a Cycling city? Definitively not. But it could be worse.

On the one hand,  there is no consistent bicycle infrastructure or signing. Bikes paths still “end nowhere” or are maid of two white line, which pedestrians like to ignore …

On the other hand, Vilnius is very green city with plenty of forest and lakes around the city and even large Green areas close to the center (Vingis and Belmontas parks). In Summer time and out of the rush hours traffic is low compared to bigger cities in Europe.

So despite of the lacking cycling infrastructure cycling is really fun in Vilnius.
