Full description
On our Riga Explorer Bike Tour, we want to show you Riga beyond the Old Town, the parts of the city that you might never find on your own. We are local residents of the city, passionate about where we live, and we want to share it with you, warts and all. We'll meet you at a convenient point, pick up some comfotable bikes and head off to explore the city. The Moscow suburb awaits, an area of the city full of history and the site of the Jewish ghetto during the Nazi occupation. Its decaying wooden houses stand in sharp contrast to the gloss of the Old Town or the splendour of the Art Nouveau buildings. We'll ride through the heart of Riga, where most Ridzenieki (the people of Riga) like to hang out, and on to the Great Cemetery, now a strange mix of graveyard and park, before returning to our starting point.  This is a great way to see Riga, get some exercise, help the environment and learn more about what the city is like today, and how it got this way. Join our Riga Explorer Bicycle Tour and see the true Riga.

    Know before you go

    • Riding in Riga is not demanding, the city is totally flat, but the lack of major bicycle infrastructure means that you must be a capable rider. Whilst our guides do everything possible to ensure your safety, if you do not feel comfortable riding a bicycle in a major city, we would be happy to welcome you on one of our many walking tours.

    A nice tour outside the tourist center

    When does this tour reach areas that cannot be explored on foot? The gight told us a lot about the districts of the city of Riga. It would have been perfect if each participant had received a bottle of water. What to say because it is a pity to see when this tour reaches areas that cannot be explored on foot.

    We had a great time! Our guide took us to very interesting places, had great stories and detailed information. They made sure we were properly fitted for our bikes and had rain jackets since the weather was a bit funky. Even with a little rain, it was a fun ride. They also helped with suggestions to where else to visit and places to eat. Awesome team!

    An exciting bike ride.

    Good bike ride to areas in Riga where normally not many tourists come. The tour was led by a very knowledgeable guide who led us safely through the traffic and especially to the slightly gloomy part of Riga where the Russians live. The guide was good at telling about history, culture and also had some political views and opinions. All in all, OK, even if it occasionally turned into a little too much talk.
