Hanoi cycling tour

Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam offers a wide selection of both day cycling tours and short cycling excursions. The most popular Hanoi cycling tours are the half-day and one-day tours are arranged in Hanoi city and its surrounding countryside area.

The guests will be picked up at their hotel lobby in Hanoi and transferred to the place where they begin the ride. After the tour, they will be transferred back to their hotel where the tour ends. It is possible for the guests to start the ride from their hotel. If they start pedaling from their hotel in Hanoi city center, they should be familiar with bicycle riding in the city. Since the traffic in Hanoi is very busy, especially during the rush hour. Sites to be included in the day tour are the Ho Chi Minh complex, the temple of literature, the Tran Quoc pagoda and the ethnic museum.

For those who travel with their children, booking a Hanoi countryside cycle tour may be a better choice. A vehicle will be used for transfers and support. The bicycle ride will be only arranged in the area where the traffic is safe. The most popular Hanoi countryside cycle tours are one day cycle to But Thap pagoda and Dong Ho village, a day tour to Duong Lam ancient village, a day tour to Tay Phuong and Thay pagoda. The day trip to Tam Coc or “Halong bay inland” is also provided with two or three hour riding through countryside villages.

The bikes that will be used for these tours are classic road bike, push bikes and mountain bikes. If you just look for fun and easy cycle, then one or two hour cycling will be fine. In this case the one speed push bikes will be recommended. If you look for more active bike tours, then you should ask for a good mountain bikes. The riding will be longer and the local tour guide will take you to more places while riding.
