 Detailed Itinerary
6:15 am

Meeting Point

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.

7:00 am

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.

7:30 am

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.

8:00 am

Secret Tunnel

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.

8:30 am

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.

9:00 am

Lassi Wala

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.

    Bikes were good complete with helmets lights. Good crew with guides looking out for traffic . Really great to be cycling when roads clear which was great fun. Knowledgeable guides. Great food and drink stops. Markets and laughing yoga and temple service were a highlight. Most of you will have bragging rights to have survived cycling Jaipur’s streets. We rode on Xmas day and made a real effort with hats and singing. Highly recommend for anyone visiting JaipurMore

    Super fun bike ride led by a local guide. It was an early start, but it was well worth it. Saw and did a lot of fun things that I would not have found otherwise, combined with local snacks along the way! Highly recommended!More

    A nice early start to the day. We saw most things on the itinerary list and also some different things.
    A tuktuk was arranged by the team to pick us up and drop us back off (we had to pay though) which is a blessing at 5am! It was meant to start at 6 but was altered the night before.
    We didn’t get to see the Isarlat Sargasooli, Khajane Walon Ka Rasta but we did dance with Hare Krishnas near the Palace, did Laughing Yoga, and went into an old princely home with a courtyard!
    We didn’t really learn too much about the city or its architecture which is fine as only so much can be said or heard as a group of you roll around the city on bikes.
    A fun morning, and you’re probably back in time to have the last sitting of breakfast at the hostel/hotel 🙂

    The traffic isn’t bad during the times that you ride, so there’s no need to worry about traffic/pollution.More

    Great tour for discovering Jaipur in the calm morning, with many stops off bike to discover markets, morning pray, laugh yoga, snacks and get a taste of how locals live in the pink city. Umish was a very fun and knowledgeable guide.

    Highly recommend this tour if you are in Jaipur!More

    Omesh was a great guide! Make sure to get up a little early as some of the usual routes are closed. We started around 7 am and got caught in some bad traffic at the end around 10:30. Budget about 4 hours from start to finish for this bike ride. The ride up to the fort is not for the faint of heart but the helper was amazing and stayed with our bikes while we walked up. Great food stops but bring hand sanitizer! Omesh is very knowledgeable and flexible, we appreciated his and the second guide’s help in the streets of Jaipur!More

    Our first impressions already set the tone for the next three hours. In pre-dawn darkness our two guides Umesch and Trulo (spelling?)were already prepared and waiting for us. The variety and diversity of adventures we encountered stimulated our hearts and minds. Our journey took us through the old center of town experiencing everything from feeding cows before sunrise to enjoying the local delicacies along the way. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It was a memorable experience that we would highly recommend and one of the greater highlight of our visit to indiaMore
