Itinerary

Beijing is a city that’s both modern and traditional, forward-looking and connected to its past, and in our opinion, 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 our 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 is hands down one of our favorite experiences, as it gives you a different perspective on this formerly “forbidden city” now being a welcoming open place for the non-royals.

Visit some of our 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 mentally challenged people, and on our 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 our cycling journey through the hutongs until you are back at the drum tower, where our Beijing bike tour will come to an end.

If you’d like to continue to the hutong experience in a different way, sampling some of the most popular snacks and visit a local produce market to learn a bit about Chinese cooking ingredients and spices, feel free to join us in the afternoon Beijing food tour which starts at 4pm. Your local guide can give you more information if you are interested.
