Make your own way to the Shichahai Metro Station to meet your guide, then walk together to the bike shop where you receive a safety briefing and get outfitted with bike and helmet.
When you're ready, follow your guide through the winding streets of Beijing. Bike through the hutongs, small lanes with traditional homes that have not changed much over time, but with present day development, they are rapidly being squeezed out of the city. For now, you can glimpse a simpler way of life as you bike through Beijing's ancient laneways and along the moat of the Forbidden City.
Learn from your guide about the sights you pass and the history of Beijing. Then enjoy a sit-down lunch at a community-based NGO that works with people who have physical and mental challenges.
After lunch, hop back on your bike see more of the hutongs on the way to your final destination: Drum Tower (Gulou) and Bell Tower (Zhonglou), two top landmarks that were built centuries ago. Learn about their history from your guide then make your own way to your next destination from there.
