To take you around the city, covering all the sites of heritage and architecture, markets and trade centres, and most importantly food hubs, we have listed out a few cycling tours of Jaipur!
Jaipur City Tour
Many cycling groups and tourism agencies offer the city tour. The tour starts at around 7 am at Narayan Singh circle, goes passed the Jal Mahal and then ride up to the Amer Fort. From here, you explore Amer village before cycling back to the city.
Nahargarh Cycling Expedition
For the adrenaline junky looking to push their strength and endurance, the steep climb of Nahargarh is definitely a must do. From the summit, you have a beautiful view of the Man Sagar Lake and the Pink City of Jaipur. The ride back down the hillside is more rewarding after the climb up!

The Royal Tour
Another interesting city tour is that of the mahals or forts Jaipur. The tour covers Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar, Amber Fort, Jaigarh and Nahargarh Fort. However, this is best done in the early hours of summer days or in the early evenings in the winter. The weather in Jaipur is a big factor in picking cycling routes.
To experience the culture, surrounded in colour, head to the main shopping markets of Jaipur. Bapu Bazaar, Nehru Bazaar and Johari Bazaar to name a few. Cycle through the crowded lanes and soak in the history, heritage and magic of trade and street shopping in its truest form.
