UPCOMING BIKE TOURS
There are no upcoming events.
Some days ago we were able to get into the old Andrejsala electrical station – the station was used to provide electricity for much of the Riga Old Town and the harbor area – they say that the station was operating up till 1994. A student from the Latvian Academy of Arts had installed an acoustic performance there for his degree – normally the place is closed to general public. Some sources say that the building will be transformed into an art museum or exhibition hall.
Some of the tree species in the parks of Riga are not typical for the region of Latvia – they were planted during the expansion of the Riga and some parts of the earlier Esplanade were turned into parks.
It is realy nice to ride around Riga in late evenings in Summer – the streets are empty – people are happy and lights are on. Experience it Yourself or join one of our Midnight Madness Bike Tours to see all the cool places.
This bike path on Skolas iela was opened just last summer. While cycling in Riga, even on the bicycle roads, always be sure to watch out for careless pedestrians – people are still not used to bike paths and sometimes pedestrians use them as a walkway.
We finally have these and more great Dutch bikes from studentbike.lv. These bikes are really good for city streets and roads in the suburbs. Handlebars are in a comfortable high position which allows an easy ride and gives a great sightseeing experience. Seats and handlebar height and angle is fully adjustable. Thanks to people at Skābene Cafe we have a spece to store them. We always recommend Skabene as a place to go – especially in those hot summer afternoons – Skabene is located in an old merchants house – the walls are thick so it is always pleasantly cool during summers.
