Full description
Explore the countryside around Colombo by bike with an experienced local cycling guide. You’ll be picked up from your hotel in Colombo and taken by tuk tuk to the Parliament Building where you’ll meet your guide for an exciting 4-hour countryside cycling expedition.

Your cycling guide will first give you a brief introduction to the tour and its safety requirements. Then, head out into Colombo’s countryside and explore the city surroundings and the landscapes, paddy fields, water tanks, and bird sanctuary.
