Rome has a significant amount of cobblestone streets, so while we would love to show you around town, we don't recommend this bike tour for expecting mothers.
This is a relatively easy tour, but we do ask all participants to know how to ride a bike and feel comfortable riding in a group. You should have good balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. Most of this tour is on roads and the surfaces in Rome vary and may include cobbled streets as well as smooth gravel and pavement.
We highly recommend it! We will prioritize places and bikes to those who have reserved in advance. All guests are welcome to join depending on availability, but we do limit group sizes for safety.
We kindly ask that once you depart with your guide, you intend on staying for the duration of the tour. The tour is about three hours long, so please plan accordingly.
