Your Best Choice to Enjoy Cycling in Rome

Romes Cycling Expert

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 led me to the conclusion that biking around Rome isn’t for the faint hearted.

So after many years, The Historic Centre of Rome is now an area to be avoided on bike tours since it is exceptionally congested. Its the busiest most pedestrainized area and although it includes great sights such as The Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and so on, its not worth cycling through.

Which means we have combined other areas of interest to make it easy, fun and very different. Thanks to joining up parks, villas & historical sights such as Via Veneto (which is the easiest way to Villa Borgese and its gardens. 

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.

Your Friendly neighborhood cycling fan.

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 below.
