This is a safe and family-friendly private bike tour with private guide of the the nearly 10km-long Turia riverbed park with well marked bike paths. We go into the City of Arts and Sciences complex and can stop and marvel at the Giant Gulliver kid park, the Roman ruins and medieval bridges.
Valencia is one of the best cities to cycle in in Europe, as it is very flat, so we run bike tours with our private guides for families with baby seats on the back, small bikes and even double or 4 seater bikes with only 2 peddlers, for the less agile. This private tour is completely customizable so don´t hesitate to let us know your preferences. The Family Riverbed Bike Tour is a private tour just for you and your party and you can go at the pace you are comfortable with and cover more ground or less ground, depending on your stamina, choice and age group. Your trained private tour guide will keep you safe, with a short tutorial at the beginning of your tour for the ‘rules of the road’, and you will be equipped with a great bike and a helmet.
After meeting at our bike rental partners shop in the city center, we will use the bike paths out of the center to the surrounding river bed, fondly still called ‘El Rio’ where a 9km long park has a wide variety of sites from local sports’ fields, roman ruins, outdoor gyms and many people doing yoga, drumming and other interesting things to watch. At the eastern most end is our famed City of Arts and Sciences, where we stroll around (biking on those grounds in prohibited) to see the amazing futuristic architecture. Depending on our pace, after a snack or drink, we continue down the Port Avenue to the Malvarrosa beach with a 5km long promenade that we can go until your heart’s content or stop to have a bite to eat. We will return via the modern University area to the center of Valencia.
