Le Tour De India
We begin our Jaipur Bike tour from “Le Tour De India” (Centrally Located For Google location – https://goo.gl/maps/ZhAz1Juqymx8h4xA8). Here you are introduced with our Lead explorers and bikes, with a short briefing about the tour, the route, dos and don’ts.
Enter the walled city
We enter the Historical walled city painted in pink which explains the sobriquet “Pink City”. The Bicycle Tour of Jaipur is a cultural connection combined with rich architecture, top food joints of Jaipur and friendly people, as we ride through narrow streets of the city passing through vintage Havelis, and several other architectural marvels meeting and greeting the locals here we reach to Sahoo Chai wala whose family has been preparing traditional Indian tea (called Chai) for the last 3 generations. The tea here is refreshing as well as very filling due to their specific secret recipe of slow boiling milk on the traditional charcoal stove, which gives it a unique taste. Also, enjoy seeing the local community involved in morning gossip and conversation.
Aarti at the Palace Temple
The Govind Dev Ji Temple
We will then head to Govind Dev Ji temple dedicated to the Indian Godhead Lord Krishna. Getting close to the temple, we manoeuvre bikes through the pedestrians rushing to attend the grand ceremony. As you enter the grand temple of Govind Dev Ji you can feel an uplifting spiritual experience that looks so welcoming in the morning. A good community of devotees is busy preparing for the traditional Aarti (vesper service and devotional hymns). As the main deity’s curtains are about to open the people start ringing the traditional humongous bells. Feel the depth of the sound emanating from the bells and striking a chord with your heart. The Aarti or main worship is equally exhilarating and charming. One just gets mesmerized by the song when hundreds of devotees sing at the same time with lighted wicks before the sacred idol of Lord Krishna.
LifeStyle of 'Jaipurite'
We will then take a walk through the public park meeting and interacting with the locals and we do get a chance to participate in laughing yoga with people, We further enter the biggest vegetable and flower market of Jaipur. It is a wholesale market where you can see a number of traders busy negotiating, conversing with the merchants, and ladies in their colourful attire carrying huge sacks of vegetables on their heads and the traditional Indian pushcarts. At the leisurely speed of the cycle, the whole scene reminds you of those old times merchant markets in the children’s stories.
Somewhere in this line, there is a narrow lane that could be called a secret way to the main road on the other side. This could also be termed as a hidden tunnel deliberately planned by the far-sighted kings of Jaipur.
The tunnel ends at the other side and you find yourself sniffing the air full of freshly fried fritters at the famous Jagannath Pakori wala. Pakori is the Indian fritter deep fried in the oil and very crispy when you eat. It is among the most famous fritter shops in India and you can see the workers frying the fritters in a huge traditional charcoal stove. We make a brief stop at a very popular tea seller’s rooftop settlement above a sweet shop. With the best Fritters (Pakoras) in the town, we enjoy tea on a rooftop and admire the most planned old city in India.
Ride Through The Corridors
The best part of this Guided bicycle tour comes when we ride in the historical spices and sweets market corridors.
Although the shops are shut in the spices market we get the strong aroma passing the closed shutters.
As we enter God’s own street, another heritage market of India where one can still feel the lingering aura of heritage even amidst the hustle and bustle of the street. The rhythmic sounds of hammers and tools present a bit loud yet soothing music. The artisans are busy sculpting the images of Hindu Deities. The street presents a fine blend of spirituality and art.
The food tour of Jaipur is not complete if we do not stop at a famous Lassi Wala (churned yoghurt shakes). The Lassi outlet was built in the independence era just outside the walled city. We conclude our bike tour with a glass of Lassi.
As this lovely bicycle safari ends here we part ways with a souvenir for you to show your friends back home when you share your Jaipur memoirs.

Early morning by bike — this was THE high point of our visit to Jaipur!
We booked this morning bike tour as part of a larger 2-wk tour of Rajasthan. The larger tour emphasized monuments, forts, tombs and temples. But on THIS tour-by-bike, OMG, the city was brought to life! My husband and I were the only folks on the tour that day, and Khushal, the owner of the bike tour, and his 2 colleagues were clearly intent on making sure we had a wonderful time, in a very personalized way. Felt like friends! They were funny, good-humored, and looked out for us every step of the way. more
Bike Tour of Old Jaipur
This is a “Must Do Tour”. It started at 6:30 AM to avoid the heat and the worst of the traffic.
The tour guides and escorts ensured we were all safe, blocking the traffic, etc.They also ensured that we stayed together and we did not have any unintentional individual exploration. More
Great Cycling Tour in Jaipur !

Fabulous sunrise bike tour in the city of Jaipur!
We met Umesh and Khushal at sunrise to start our 3 hour bike tour. It was fantastic! They set us up with really good bikes and helmets. We set off as the sun was coming up on an adventure of the city. They were both so much fun and shared a lot of knowledge of their great city. More
The best way to see Jaipur
Having seen the traffic it was with reservation that we embarked on the cycle tour of jaipur but we could not be more pleased that we did. The tour was really well organised and fascinating. Along with our two fantastic guides we did everything from trying the best lassi in town to seeing the local food and flower markets first thing in the morning. More
Spectacular tour of Jaipur by bicycle!
The bike tour through Jaipur with Umesh and his wonderful assistant was definitely one of the top highlights of our two week trip in India. The tour starts quite early in the morning – which is great, especially for those of us who are not so confident on a bike – since you can get your bearings before the traffic really picks up. More

Best bike tour in India
This was, by far, the best tour we took in India. Our guide, Umesh, was very engaging and took us to some non-touristy places in Jaipur that we wouldn’t have discovered on our own, including the flower market and a temple to experience a morning gathering with tremendous energy. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Jaipur. Source
3 Hour Morning Bike Tour of Jaipur
We had a fantastic time on the bike tour this morning! In the early morning hours the streets and monuments are less crowded and you can experience the city in a much different way. On the tour we enjoyed local experiences like enjoying masala chai, lassi, pakoras, sweet and savory snacks, going to Govind Dev Ji temple and viewing local homes. More
Best way to discover the real Jaipur
I Cycled around central Jaipur with Usomething mesh and a very friendly English couple. The experience of cycling through the city early morning guided expertly in the still light traffic is an absolute joy. What is more, the tour takes you around the real local life and you get to see, feel, touch, hear, smell and taste Jaipur (and laugh and clap, but about that I won’t say any more except that it’s as thrilling and authentic as the rest). More
The best thing I did in India !!!
I absolutely loved this. This is a world away fighting your way through crowds of tourists at Amber Fort. You get to see how the world wakes up in Jaipur. We fed the cows, drunk chai, took part in a laughing yoga class, ate pakora on the rooftop, visited flower markets, vegetable markets etc etc etc. The guys were fantastic. A must do on your visit to Jaipur. Thank you all. More
The hidden wonders of Jaipur
The bike tour with Umesh was simply amazing, my friends and I stayed in Jaipur for three days and visited the main things in the first two. However, my Jaipur experience wouldn’t have been the same if I had missed this morning bike tour. Umesh gave us a new perspective of the city, showed us some hidden and beautiful places, where local workers follow their daily lives. More
Bicycle Tour in Jaipur
This was more than just a bicycle tour it was an intimate disclosure of why this medieval city was a “light” in the ancient East! The team was both enthusiastic and enchanting as they filled our morning with surprises which I won’t share (must see yourself). The tour ended with us yearning for more given that this city had stolen a piece of our hearts! source
