Riding suzhou

Reasons to cycle in Suzhou:

    1. 2500 years ago, Emperor Wuwang Helv built its capital city here. The city didn’t change much since 500 BC. The city always keeps the style of “ street nearby river” and the wonderful sight of white wall and black tile, as well as bridge and river. The ancient city is 14.2 inside the moat. It will cost you just 15 min’s to ride from north to south or from west to east.
    2. Most of gardens and places of interests locate within the ancient city. Furthermore, some sights locate on walking-streets. So it’s better to get there by bike. Only in old streets and alleys can you taste the easy lifestyle in Suzhou. That’s the real peaceful life. We have our own riding map, on which you can find more than 20 hundreds-of-years-old wells. You would be amazed to find that they are still in use.
    3.There are more than 400 ancient protecting-buildings in Suzhou city. Most of them are famous persons’ memorials、special buildings and places containing legends. By our special map, you would know about the ancient city and the change when years go by. Most importantly, you needn’t buy any tickets.
    4.Bicycle is one of the main transport tools in Suzhou. It's safe and convenient to ride around Suzhou.
    5.It’s about 30 km from Suzhou to Tongli Town or Luzhi Town or West Hill or East Hill. If you feel ok, we strongly suggest you ride there. On the road, you can enjoy the sights and save expense meanwhile.

First of all, it’s very interesting to travel by bike, as well as saving time and expense. Besides you can know about ancient Suzhou city and local people. The third, riding is the way travelling sportively and environment-protectly.
