Tour Rome & Italy by Bicycle

The Red Bicycle is a small, independently run bicycle shop in the center of Rome. From our location right next to the Colosseum, we organize bike tours through the city and out into the countryside along the Appian Way.

Our fleet of modern bicycles are well maintained, thanks to our onsite mechanic Tasso. Together with Glenn & Musa who have been leading the tours since 2012, makes us the best choice when it comes to reliability.

All our tours are authorized by a local travel agent, with a full money back guarantee in the event you are unable to attend or need to cancel.

Whats better than a bicycle? Perhaps nothing, maybe just a red one!


I started the Red Bicycle in 2010 when an old friend of mine lent me a bicycle which I painted red. Since then I have learnt how to manage groups of bikers eager to see and feel Rome. My languages include English (mother tongue), Italian and Dutch.  I am responsible for organizing the routes, tours and guides but its not uncommon that I actually lead the tours as well.


Rome Bike tour Guide MusaI have been working as a tour leader since 2012. My languages include English, French and Italian. I am originally from Senegal but have been living and working in Italy since 2007. Currently I am responsible for the Appian Way and Catacomb bike tours as the area outside of Rome in the countryside is my preferred area of expertise.


Im the Red Bicycles mechanic and maintain the fleet of bicycles we use for the tours and rentals. I am responsible for other cyclists who bring their own bikes in for repairs and build up bikes to specification, using vintage italian bike frames and parts.

Getting around Rome can be pretty tiring. With so much to see and a limited time, why not try a Rome Bike Tour? The best way to see Romes monuments like the Colosseum and Vatican, visit its various quarters and learn about Roman history.

The Red Bicycle leads daily tours of Rome by bike from our cycle shop near the Colosseum, starting at 9.30am, 3pm (summer time) and 5pm. For those who have already been to Rome, or want to do something outside in the roman countryside, there is also the Appia Antica Regional Park. An extensive area of 3200 hectares this park has aqueducts, catacombs, natural springs and an old roman road called the Appia Antica running through it.
