Make your way to Dabaishu Station, near Luxun Park, to meet your guide and group at 9am. Get fitted for a bicycle and helmet, then get pedaling.
As you pedal, admire the Shikumen-style 'nontang', or laneway houses, such as the residential complex General Zhou Enlai and Xichengli. Cycle through Tianzifang, a shopping district in the French Concession area. Take breaks to rest and snap photos, while your guide fills you in on some of the classic features of Shikumen architecture and the style's history.
Pass shopfronts on busy Old Street on your way to Yuyuan Garden, where you'll see some examples of classical Chinese architecture, pools, and pavilions. Make your way back to the original departure point, where your cycling tour ends.
