"Bicycle riding & Serrekunda Market" The Gambia Things to Do Tip by johndavid1988

The Gambia Things to Do: 171 reviews and 376 photos

just rent some mountain bikes and drive towards Serrekunda - avoid the big road with loads of traffic - and then just drive around this bustling city. You can park your bicycle e.g. at a local bar, have a drink and then ask the waiter to look after your bikes whilst you visit the market. You just wander around and you will be amazed at what you all see. In general the locals don't pay much attention to you unlike the beaches were you will often be approached by locals to try and sell you trips, souvenirs etc. It is so refreshing to see the day to day life in a busy city.
