What is DelhiByCycle? An initiative started by Dutch journalist and fanatic cyclist Jack Leenaars in the Indian winter of 2009. Inspired by his years of experience on Delhi roads he came up with the concept of organizing guided bicycle tours in the old city. Highly popular in metro poles around the world like Bangkok, Paris, San Francisco and Beijing the concept is proving itself also in Delhi.
