Granted you have previous experience cycling, those of all ages and fitness levels are capable to join our tour. We hosted guests between the age of 5 and 77. For younger children ages 1-4 years, child seats for the front (quantity 2) and the back (quantity 1) are available to those who reserve in advance. Two smaller bikes for children are also available upon request. Bikes are adult-size with 24" wheels, which generally fit teenagers too.
Cycle Canton's route is carefully mapped out and follows small streets, greenways, parks, alleyways and pedestrian boulevards. Over 80% of the route is away from traffic. Special caution is needed on busier streets and road crossings; at these points, our guides stop traffic for you. Helmets are available for all participants. Your safety is our top priority!
Anything you feel comfortable cycling around in. Lycra and spandex is definitely NOT needed!
We never cancel tours due to rain. From experience, we know it rarely rains for longer than 30 minutes. In case of rain, we are prepared with raincoats for all the guests and know where to hide along the way if it happens, as Cantonese say, to "rain like dog shit"! If you are unsure about weather forecast, please be in touch with us.
Bikes are provided by Cycle Canton, but it is possible to bring your own. If you do so, let us know when booking! As start and finish locations are different, please note that you will need to make separate arrangement for your own bike by the end of the tour.
We cycle at a slow, leisurely pace. This is NOT a bike race, but rather a pleasurable afternoon ride where you have the chance to look around and take in the scenery. You will definitely keep up!
