They say the best way to get to know a city is to walk its streets. Or, in this case – cycle its streets. You get to devour it a little better, taking in all the sights and sounds, and you get to cover a lot of ground in a small span of time! Presenting Cyclin’Jaipur – guided tours of the Pink City on cycles. We’ve explored Delhi on a set of wheels with a whole lot of effort {all that pedaling is exhausting, we’ll have you know} and now we’re ready to take on Jaipur.

Cyclin’Jaipur, the brainchild of two French childhood friends Eléonore and Ophélie, has introduced an innovative way to explore the city, whether it’s your first time visiting or whether you just want to discover your town in a whole new way. From the Pink Royal tour, to the Pink Inside tour, these guides are tailored to help you explore pockets of Jaipur that you ordinarily might miss out on. The cherry on the {pink} sundae? There are also walking tours, chances to learn to cook authentic North-Indian food, and lazy afternoons with elephants. So if pedaling all day isn’t your cup of tea, Cyclin’Jaipur still has plenty other things to offer.

The two women work with local guides to guarantee that every tour is detailed, and discovers different facets of Jaipur. An added plus – it’s a great way to meet new people in a strange city. Especially now, with the Jaipur Literature Fest just ‘round the corner, this would make a great story to take back home with you. With some killer recipes under your belt, if you please.
