Tour description provided by Viator

Hop on a bike and explore Beijing like a local. Discover the history and charm of Beijing's ancient alleys and laneways known as hutongs. You'll cycle around the winding hutongs behind the Forbidden City and through a local market before stopping for lunch at a community-based NGO.

Get to know Beijing on a bike. This small group bike tour has a maximum of 12 participants, which allows you a more personalized experience as you bike around Beijing. Meet at the Shichahai Metro Station before heading over to the bike shop, where you will be given a full safety briefing and fitted with your bike and helmet.Cycle your way through the winding streets of Beijing for a glimpse into the ancient heart of the city and a simpler way of life. You'll bike through the hutongs, unchanged over time, but rapidly being squeezed out of the city through development. Experience centuries of daily life as you bike along the moat of the forbidden city and through Beijing's ancient laneways. Sit down to lunch at a community-based NGO. Learn about the work they do with the physically and mentally challenged before hopping back onto your bikes and continuing through the hutongs until you reach your final destination at the Drum Tower.
