Explore Cycling in Beijing
There is no better way to experience Beijing then by bicycle. On two wheels you will be able to see areas of the city that hurried tourist groups are rushed past; see the city from the eyes of a local. A bike is the preferred mode of transportation in Beijing and the roads are more than accommodating to those who chose two wheels over four. If you happen to get a flat tire, there are roadside bike repair stalls conveniently scattered throughout the city. There are also many options for bike tours. Take the Imperial Bike Tour, which takes you past Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the National Theater and the City Wall Relics.
