On August 1st, commuter bike distributor, Linus Bikes, commented on a journalist’s recent excursion to find bike-friendly cities that offer tours as an inexpensive way to see the city, after she spent time on a bicycle exploring the city of Prague.

According to the article, Seattle Times travel writer Carol Pucci says that renting a bike is the best way to explore a big, foreign city. She advises people, “Get the lay of the land. Learn a little history. Make new friends. I think of these excursions as walking tours on wheels.”Pucci gives advice on biking all over the world, including cities such as Bangkok, Paris, Florence and Beijing. She says that all of these cities have perfect locations for cycling, allowing visitors to experience the culture and see all the tourist sites.

Linus Bikes spokesperson China Reevers says, “Biking is a cultural commonality. No matter where you are in the world, you will always see people traveling by bike. At Linus, we work hard to give people bikes that will enable them to see the world and create their own memories. It’s great that Ms. Pucci set out to find a way to make seemingly expensive tourist destinations, like Paris and Beijing, more affordable for tourists while at the same time promoting a healthier, eco-friendly way to do it.”

Any city can be bike-friendly. As the green movement continues to grow and people are adopting healthier lifestyles, the number of cities that are bike-friendly will only increase. As increasing numbers of cities add bike sharing and ride to work programs, bicycle tourism will only be bolstered by these efforts.
