Bicycle Tours & Activities

Guided Bike Tours and Cycling Activities around Rome

Welcome to the Red Bicycle, Romes local English speaking bicycle tour guide.

I have been leading bicycle tours around Rome since 2011, starting from outside the colosseum. My routes and knowledge of Romes history have been developed over many years of experience, taking time to visit Romes origins and understand the Italian peoples habits today.

There are still many things to discover in this great city and, although I haven’t stopped exploring yet, I am keen on taking others to revisit those secrets I discovered when I first moved here in 2007. Like the Island with its turtle pond or the courtyard of Palazzo Mattei where the Study of American History is held.

From my bike depot near the Colosseum I offer to show people around Rome on modern bicycles. We stop to visit famous places and have a break for coffee along the way, visiting the city in an intimate relaxed way. The routes we follow are perfect for families even with young kids.

If you would like to join me or find out more about what other activities we have planned, please read through the rest of the website or send me an email.

I started the Red Bicycle off the back of a row of other experiences, starting as a walking tour guide and then moving onto bikes. Originally I would rent bikes from another bike hire shop in the square but that was a long time ago. To read more about us, click on the link.About Us
