Wake up Pondy cycle tour
At Sita cultural center, we have our heart set on promoting our city and make our fellow guests discover every nook and cranny of Pondicherry.
Indeed, many travellers passing by the city do explore just a tiny bit and miss a lot. That is why we have decided to come up with a guided cycle ride which covers the entire city center in just 2 hours !
Sita cultural center innovated and was the first ever to propose back in 2014 in collaboration with My vintage bicyclette, Pondicherry guided cycle tours.
The best Pondicherry’s experience
From the colourful villas of the Muslim area to the Sri Aurobindo ashram quarters, from the Goubert market to the sea side and its French touch, explore Pondicherry in the early morning for a safe and fresh ride.
Ride your cycle, get an helmet and let’s go ! Thanks to our vintage design cycles, you won’t limit yourself in the sea coast and the few streets nearby but would be able to explore the entire city center.
With our well versed guide, in small friendly groups, you will get to know anecdotes that you won’t find anywhere else. You will discover the daily life of Pondy localites and Manisha or Darshana will give you some historic bits of our iconic city as well as some French words made into Tamil vocabulary and the other way around.
Furthermore, the rhythm will definitely make you enjoy Pondicherry’s headline ‘Give time a break!’. Indeed, we provide many pit stops for you to enjoy the sight views, take pictures and listen carefully to the guide’s explanations.
This experience is a must if you want to get the most of your stay in Pondicherry.
