What Is It?

Hoping for a refreshing change from those lazy Sunday mornings? How about a fun cycling tour of the city, with some food and beer thrown in? Sounds ideal, right? The folks over at Active Holiday Company {a city-based travel group} think so too, which is why they came up with the Bangalore Bicycling Brunch Tour. Scheduled to take place twice a month {on Sundays}, the tour lets you explore some iconic spots in central Bangalore on your bicycle — Vidhana Soudha, Cubbon Park and Ulsoor Lake, to name a few. All this while you hop from one restaurant to another to tuck in to some signature dishes and brews.

Who Is It For?

Cycling enthusiasts and amateurs, fitness freaks, foodies, guzzlers — it’s for just about everyone, you see. If you’re new to the city or visiting, this is a great opportunity to make some friends and get to know the place better.

Why Should I Go For It?

The idea of a morning ride to kickstart your Sunday is itself quite exhilarating. Starting off with a round of juices at the Fresh Pressery Cafe at Good Earth, you get to ride through Ulsoor before you hit the next pitstop — Smally’s. Once you’re done digging into some of the specials there, head on to Cubbon Park, where you can stop and try your hand at slack lining. What better way to end the tour than with a meal and beer sampling, courtesy The Biere Club! While bike rentals, helmets and vehicle support will be organised by the Active Holiday Company, you’re welcome to bring along your own bike.
