Old Delhi by Bicycle — travels with a milk addict

 

Check out Travels with a Milk Addict‘s write-up of a recent bike tour in Delhi.  This is only the second bike tour we’ve discovered in Delhi, a city of 25M residents.  But there are plenty of hidden adventures in this vast city and our two bike tour listings aim to show them to you:

Not much sleep as we try to adapt to the +5.5 hr time zone meant a 6.30am bike tour was pretty early. They have them this early so it is quiet, we got a rickshaw there and it was in no way quiet 😄, our starting point was not far from a large mosque which […]

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?

Thanks to International in Style for writing this great review of Loudest Yeller Bicycle Tours:

After seven months of “settling in” to New York City, I finally decided to explore parts of the city outside of the neighborhoods I normally frequent.I conveniently live in midtown, yet I rarely make it to Lower Manhattan. One of the best ways to explore intricacies of a big city is by simply walking it, […]

Get Outta Town in Amsterdam

tour_de_amsterdam_bikesThere is a LOT to do in Amsterdam, a whole lot.  For bike tours alone, there are at least six city bike tours available.  But then there’s the rest of the Netherlands RIGHT outside the city limits.  Nature, dikes, windmills…..all available on a short bike ride from town.  And Tour de Amsterdam wants to show it to you:

Tour de Amsterdam organises bicycle tours in the area around Amsterdam. Accompanied by a tour guide, you cycle through the unique flat Dutch landscape past windmills, dikes and farmhouses. You clock up mileages but we make sure that there is enough time to visit fishing-villages such as Monnickendam and Marken. The perfect combination of cycling and sightseeing! We would like to share our passion for cycling with you.

Tour de Amsterdam’s tours range from around 90 minutes to 4 hours.  The Prologue Tour is a little over 20 miles at a reasonable pace.  Although their tours are a bit more strenuous than a city tour on a cruiser bike, that’s pretty doable for most casual cyclists.  And, believe me,  we are nothing but casual cyclists here at BTBT.

They have top ratings over at Tripadvisor, although you might have to get some help translating from Dutch (but our high school German skills seem to think those are pretty good reviews).

Don’t worry, the tours are in English and there’s not a hill in sight!
