Cinque Terre is known for its rewarding and challenging hiking trails which crisscross the National Park of Cinque Terre. Given the rough terrain of the region, biking is said not to be the most pleasant and even recommendable tourist pursuit. This is perhaps why bike rental companies are close to nothing in any of the resorts in Cinque Terre. However, tourists who want to try out the celebrated trails of the park by bike can turn to the authorities in charge with managing the National Park of Cinque Terre in order to rent a bike and search out the hinterland on two wheels.

In fact, the authorities themselves had the initiative of implementing certain bike paths in order to offer tourists the diversity of the pleasure of discovering the park. This is, however, a relatively recent tourist offer which, apparently, has paid out, since it is an increasingly popular pursuit more and more visitors chose to explore.

Next to this incipient biking infrastructure, the managing authorities of the park offer, as said, bike rental services at each of the tourist information offices in the five villages of Cinque Terre. Bike rental is also available in the villages of Montenero (call 0039 0187 760528 in order to make reservations), San Bernardino (0039 0187 812548), Volastra (0039 0187 760523) and Telegrafo (0039 0187 760561).

Owners of Cinque Terre Cards are entitled to substantial discounts if they want to rent bikes from any of the tourist information offices managed by the authorities of the National Park of Cinque Terre.
