Ten-Second Takeaway

SpinMonkey is a cycling tourism venture offering a series of tours of Delhi by travelling, you guessed it, on cycles.

What Is It?

SpinMonkey offers clients a cultural riding experience through either the lanes of Old Delhi or the streets of New Delhi. A combination of cycling, sightseeing, and eating, these tours are a fun and interactive way of seeing Delhi, and immersing yourself in the history, architecture, art, music, and food of our fine city.

On Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays you can explore the by lanes of Old Delhi, covering Fatehpuri Masjid, the spice market, flower market, Chandni Chowk, Red Fort, Jama Masjid, and Karim’s. They will, of course, stop regularly for chai breaks. Be sure to carry your camera!

The New Delhi tour hits the likes of Connaught Place, Rashtrapati Bhawan, Rajpath, Agersen ki Baoli, and Dhobi Ghat. Ride by Delhi’s most symbolic monuments and immerse yourself in the city’s urban spirit.

Things To Keep In Mind

Groups are purposely kept small, so book your tour in advance. Try and arrive 15 minutes before the meeting time, so you’re well prepared. They will have a bike, helmet, and accessories available for use, but if you would prefer to bring your own, that is fine too.

If you have children under the age of 10, they can and will arrange a family tour for you {just give them a call beforehand}. For regular public tours to take place, a minimum of three guests are required.

While not for everyone, we think SpinMonkey seems like a great way to explore the city for first-time visitors, or locals who want to try something new. You can fly solo, go on a cute, unique date, or collect the family and friends and go on a large tour.
