Tour Details

Beijing is a city thatís both modern and traditional, forward-looking and connected to its past, and in one of the best ways to experience it all is by bike.

Although modernizing at a rapid pace, for now, China's capital still preserves its ancient and traditional heart in the winding alleyways and backstreets around the Forbidden City. Known as hutongs, these lanes are still home to many of Beijing's residents as well as shops, markets, temples, and historic buildings.

As your Beijing bike tour winds through the hutongs, you'll have a unique view of this traditional way of life and witness this neighborhood as it slowly disappears and the developers move in. Riding along the Forbidden City moat and through the parks nearby gives you a different perspective on this formerly "forbidden city" now being a welcoming open place for the non-royals.

Make some local friends at Huiling and enjoy a simple, yet tasty Chinese lunch in a hutong house. Huiling is a community-based NGO which does great work for people with mental difficulties, and on your visit you will have a chance to learn about the work that they do and make some friends in the workshop.

Hop back on to your bikes and continue your cycling journey through the hutongs until you are back at the drum tower, where your Beijing bike tour will come to an end.
