The north of Sri Lanka on two wheels
A treasured symbol of resilience, and a fond icon of northern culture – bicycles have long been one of the foremost methods of transport for local society in Jaffna, regardless of age or profession. Be it simple visits to the local market, or longer journeys to destinations beyond the city center, bicycles can be seen used in almost every corner of the northern peninsula, and serve as a wonderful way to absorb the culture and heritage of the region.
North Gate by Jetwing hosts a number of cycle tours throughout the day to various locations in Jaffna and its suburbs. Your tour can be arranged from the reception beforehand, where a bicycle will be reserved for you alongside a helmet and bottled water to keep you refreshed throughout the journey.
