Cycle throught the vibrant narrow lanes of Old Delhi!

The best way to visit the vibrant narrow lanes of Old Delhi is by bicycle. We will take you through the walled city passing by the stunning Ajmeri Gate, the main Mosque Jama Masjid as well as the Red Fort. We will visit Khari Market and the Chilli Market. At the end of the tour we will also have a unique opportunity to see Old Delhi from a rooftop before indulging in a tasty north Indian breakfast of chole puri, samosa and chai.

Your group will be accompanied by two guides, one of whom will ride behind the group for extra safety. Whilst we start early to avoid traffic and the heat of the day, Old Delhi can still be a busy and challenging place to ride. This tour is only appropriate for experienced, confident cyclists. For a calmer and peaceful cycling experience, check out our New Delhi Bicycle Tour.

Faqs

Cycling in Delhi!? Is it safe?

Safety is our number one priority and we take several precautions to ensure safety. First, we leave early in the morning while the streets are relatively calm and the weather is cool. Second, we provide helmets for everyone. Finally, we have a second guide who rides in the back of the group with the sole task of keeping an eye on everyone.

However, whilst we start early to avoid traffic and the heat of the day, Old Delhi can still be a busy, challenging place to ride. This tour is only appropriate for experienced, confident cyclists. For a calmer, more peaceful cycling experience, check out our New Delhi Bicycle Tour

Are the bicycles and helmets included?

Yes, both bicycles and the helmet are included in the tour price. While helmets are not compulsory in India, you can request a helmet either when you sign up or on the day of the tour.

Why is it so early?

We leave early to avoid traffic and the heat of the day. Trust us, this is the absolute best time to see Delhi by bicycle and it is well worth the early wake up call!

What will we see?

Our bicycle tour is a fantastic orientation to Old Delhi. We’ll visit the must see Old Delhi sights such as Jama Masjid, Red Fort, and Digamber Jain Temple. But we’ll also introduce you to some local food and show you the area from a rooftop.

What should I wear?

Clothing you would wear for exercise is ideal, but not necessary. Depending on the season, it can be chilly at the beginning of tour. Our recommendation is to dress in layers and wear comfortable clothes.

What do I need to bring?

Everything including snacks and drinks will be provided. Don’t forget your camera! There is a back rack on the cycles to hold the water bottle provided. We recommend a small backpack should you want to bring anything else.

Is it appropriate to bring small children on the tour?

The tour involves quite a bit a cycling and is only recommended for confident, experienced cyclists. We do not recommend this tour for anyone under the age of 16.

How far do we ride?

In total we cycle 14km (about 9 miles) but that is spread over 3 hours and punctuated by frequent stops for drinks, visiting sights, and some food. In general, the difficulty is very low and doesn’t require participants to be in exceptional shape.

How many people can go on a private tour?

A private tour is for up to 6 people.

Do you provide private tours for large groups?

Absolutely! We regularly work with several schools and travel groups and provide them private tours for their groups. It’s always one of the highlights of their India trip! Please get in touch if you are the organizer of a group visit: delhi@realitytoursandtravel.com

Is the breakfast at the end of tour included?

Yes! At the end of the tour we stop at a local cafe where you get to try a typical North Indian breakfast (puri sabji, samosa, etc). This is included in the price of the tour.

What types of bike do you use?

We use reputable brands such as Hero, which is widely used in India. They are fixed gear models for easier riding and maintenance. The terrain is flat so gears and experience are not required! The bikes are adjustable but we can also provide larger or smaller bikes as required.

What if I have an issue with my bike?

We fully maintain our bikes and they are checked before every tour. Issues are rare but we have a kit for quick repairs such as punctures and our second guide will offer their bike to ensure the tour keeps moving. We can also replace any bike without much delay if necessary.
