Is Cycling in Delhi an easy task ? Absolutely. Of course you will have to deal with the cows, tuk tuks & pedestrians but you will soon realize that the carefully designed routes are a blessing and you will begin to enjoy your ride in no time. Unfortunately bringing your own bikes is not an option, but you are guaranteed to find a perfect match from the bikes available. Tours run daily and children are also welcome as smaller bicycles can be opted for. A baby seat is fit behind the rider free of charge but if they insist on riding it is the parents who eventually have to make the call.
Next time you find yourself in the Indian Capital and fancy a ride around town like no other, do give them a shout.
