Bike The City® main purpose is to offer an active, lighthearted, informative and amusing overview of the city by bike and a real opportunity to take in its authentic atmosphere.

In a nutshell we strive to make our new found friends live the best time ever.   

ONCE UPON A TIME
Our true story 

Francesca and Alessandro, founders of Bike The City®, have to thank Milan for meeting each other (now they are 4!) and realizing the long-cherished dream of having their own business to run.

Milan, as Alessandro always says, is a city of endless possibility, that lets you realize your projects if you are determined and willing to work hard and dream higher.

Francesca thinks that the bicycle is synonymous with enjoying life to the fullest and she loves it also as a design fetish and a green economy flag. In her career it is to be underlined how she was an isolated case of “crazy bike commuting” student going every day to La Sapienza University in Rome and that, first thing she did when she arrived in Milan, was buy a bicycle on the wave of enthusiasm of seeing a space reserved for bicycles in most of the Milanese courtyards!

But the idea of Bike The City® was not exactly born in Milan. Let’s set the scene, we have to fly to Paris where, for some, literally freezing, months, Francesca worked for an international consulting company. 

Her love Alessandro was about to visit her, and it was his first time in Paris. Already bothered by the idea of repeating the cliché tourist itinerary of Paris, Francesca thought “why don’t we go around by bicycle?”.

The idea turned out to be a success, despite the rain, and the two were cycling drenched and smiling stupidly to each other, when a strange idea sparked in their minds: “why don’t we create a bike tour in Milan?”. 

The city is flat, most of its beauty is not visible at first glance, the little roads and palace courtyards shield its best treasures. “Let’s do it” they said, and they did. Everything changed from that moment, they embraced their passion, their dream and immersed themselves into a new sleep depriving adventure

From 2011, they have proudly welcomed thousands of travelers from all around the globe in Milan and, a few years later, in Turin and Verona too.

WHAT OUR HAPPY CLIENTS SAY

A GREAT WAY TO SEE MILAN!

Our tour guide was very informative and took us to some interesting places in Milan. We very much enjoyed visiting the different districts of Milan by pedal power which gave us a different perspective on things – the tour buses have to stick to the roads whereas the bikes can go down cycle paths and much quicker than walking so you can fit more sightseeing into your day.The cycle tour was a brilliant way to see the city and the guides at Bike & The City are very knowledgeable and helpful. 

We’re planning a trip to Turin in the future and look forward to taking the cycle tour there as well.

INFORMATIONAL AND ENTERTAINING INTRODUCTION TO MILAN

Angelo was a great guide who took us on a lively and well-organized ride across the city. We saw a great combination of ancient sites and modern attractions, all at a safe and enjoyable biking pace. Great way to take in the city and plan for places to return to for deeper exploration.

A GREAT WAY TO EXPERIENCE MILAN!

If you want a really good overview of Milan in 3 hours, this is excellent value for money whilst getting some exercise as a fringe benefit. Francesco was friendly, knowledgeable and keen for the experience to be positive for us. We were lucky to have Francesco to ourselves as the other people didn’t show. The trip shows great variety from the modern city to the historical. Make sure you have your wits about, meandering between and dodging traffic, pedestrians, other cyclists all adds to this fabulous Italian experience!!
