One of the great things that have emerged since the turn of the century is the global push for physical fitness; we are all doing something to exercise, and if biking is your thing and you would like to socialise by riding with others, there are special tour groups you can join when travelling.
Whether you are a resident of this unique metropolis, or a tourist, touring Sydney by bike is a must for your schedule. They have great bikes and they have many years of experience and know all the very best little places that are tucked away in this huge city, making for a unique experience on two wheels.
The Sydney bike tours provider limit tours to 6 people and their intimate knowledge means when the tour is over, you probably know more about Sydney than a local! A typical tour takes 3-4 hours, which is perfect for a day out, as you can spend the rest of the day sightseeing. You might have your own group, which is fine, or you might be a couple that wish to gain an insight into this fascinating city with such a young history.
Rather than having to find the company’s offices, simply Google ‘Sydney bike tour’ to be taken to their website, where you can find out more about the various tours, and when you’re ready, you can make an online booking. Bike tours are incredibly popular with tourists, so book as soon as your dates are confirmed, just to be on the safe side.
The hidden stories
Aside from the great architecture and pleasant gardens, you will get to hear a few hidden stories about Sydney, which gives you a valuable and unique insight into this amazing city. People who have stood out for one reason or another and made significant contributions to the city we know today, and your guide will know all of them. There is a choice of several tours, so you can choose one that best suits and by booking early, you won’t be disappointed.
On or off the beaten track
If you only have a few days and want to see all the well-known places, they have a tour for you, but if you would like to explore some of the less-known areas, you will be accommodated. As the tour operator has vast local knowledge, they put together what they consider to be the very best and you will see Sydney in a different light.
Add some variety to your holiday
While there are many things to see and do in Sydney, it is recommended that you set one day aside and explore the city on two wheels with a guide who can give you a real insight into both people and places. It’s a unique way to explore the city and bikes can get into more places than buses and boats! Not only do you get to have a tour of the city, but you get to enjoy the thrill of biking at the same time whilst taking in the sights, smells and sounds.

One thought on “Bike tours: what are they and should I join one?”
That sounds like really good fun. It’s got the environmental-friendliness of a walking tour, but you could pack in much more in a day.
