Urban Adventures: Cycling in and around Jaipur
Get away from the tourist crowds and into some of the backroads of Jaipur. Discover the city and the surrounding areas at your own pace.
What iO thinks
Jaipur has various cycling options. You can cycle early in the morning inside the pink city and have breakfast as the city wakes up. Or, you can go offroading into the scrub forests of the Aravalli hills. For a longer trip, you can cycle outside of Jaipur – getting away from the highways and visiting small villages and agricultural areas. Cycling around Jaipur is a very rewarding experience.
