Exploring Delhi’s Majestic Monuments by Bike

Published by rentnhop on

There’s no better way to really immerse yourself in Delhi’s incredible history and architecture than from the seat of a bike. Zipping around the city on two wheels, taking in all the majestic monuments, is how I want to explore this capital city.

That’s why if I were getting a bike on rent in Delhi and had plans to visit any place, creating epic bike tours to the top monuments would be a must. Visitors could see the Red Fort, India Gate, Qutub Minar, Humayun’s Tomb, and more up close on perfectly planned bike routes. Sign me up. 

Picture this: you pick up your bike on rent in Delhi from Rentnhop located right in the heart of the city. The friendly staff fits you with a helmet and gives you a map of the bike route we’ll be taking today—the “Mughal Marvels” tour.

Pick up your bike rental and set off 

We’ll be hitting Delhi’s most magnificent monuments built during the Mughal Dynasty’s reign from the 16th to 19th centuries. Our route takes us past the imposing Red Fort with its iconic red sandstone walls, the towering Qutub Minar victory tower, and the intricate tombs of Humayun and Safdarjung.

After a quick briefing on bike safety and monument history, we set off with our bike rental in Delhi. We coast down wide boulevards and peaceful side streets, getting a feel for Delhi’s diverse neighborhoods. The locals going about their day on foot or scooter call out friendly greetings as we pass.

Take in Humayun’s Tomb, a Mughal Architectural Marvel 

Our first stop is the Humayun’s Tomb, an awe-inspiring structure of red and white sandstone. Its proportions and symmetry are amazing feats of architecture, especially considering it was built in the 1500s. We take time to walk around the tomb and marvel at the decorations.

Refueled by bottles of water and bananas (gotta stay hydrated and fueled on your bike rental in Delhi), we hop back on our rides and make our way to the towering Qutub Minar. At over 70 meters tall, this incredible pillar of victory is a sight to behold. We lay in the grass for a bit to snap some photos of the entire minaret towering above us.

Discover the beauty of Red Fort 

The final stop on our route is the magnificent Red Fort, a UNESCO world heritage site. We bike along the imposing walls of this palace complex on our way to the Lahore Gate entrance. Inside are courtyards, gardens, mosques, and museums to explore. But we decide to relax for a bit, sipping mango lassi in the shade of lofty arches. 

After seeing these incredible testaments to Mughal architecture and power up close from our bikes, I feel a new appreciation for Delhi’s place in India’s story. What an unforgettable day. 

As you can see, a bike on rent in Delhi is an amazing way to experience Delhi’s heritage sites. Slow travel helps you notice details and work up an appetite for the delicious local cuisine! Plus biking between monuments is a scenic, sweat-inducing workout as well. It’s a win-win.


So next time you’re visiting Delhi, skip the crowded tour buses. Get a bike on rent in Delhi from Rentnhop and let us create a custom monument-packed bike tour for you. With the wind in your hair and historic architecture all around, you’ll get the true Delhi experience.
