Loved riding the Bamboo bikes - no gears and Chengdu is super flat. This is a great way to see the city and we found the first few hours very relaxing. Later in the tour, the ride became a little more tense as more people came onto the streets and the local way of driving/cycling is somewhat crazy.. however that's part of the experience! For the most part you are in cycle lanes but so are the other cyclists, motor scooters and odd pedestrians who don't seem to take much notice of the surroundings. I imagine that bike enthusiasts will love collecting their bike from the Company's workshop as you can see how the Company hand make the bikes.
We are a family with 3 teenagers and we had a stop in chengdu for 9 hours for transit. So we book this tour. This was very pleasant and everybody enjoyed to discover the city on beautiful bamboo bikes. The weather was a little cold and unfortunately not the good season to see Lotus flowers in parks. Our Canadian guide was very friendly and answered to all questions. I recommend this tour to have an surprising overview of ChengDu.
Had a wonderful morning cycling the busy streets of Chengdu with Abu. Was flexible and we had a stop in the Teahouse in the Peoples Park and a local cup of tea. Cycled down Tibet and China Streets and along the river. Bikes are very comfortable and easy to ride. Interesting to be able to spend time with the developer and manufacturer of the bamboo bikes. I would thoroughly recommend this trip for any cyclist.
