Hi Daisy, there are bicycle rental companies, like Bike Beijing and the others, but Beijing does not allow riding in the parks. If you want to ride a comfortable tour around town and learn what's going on: check in on WanLin Bicycle Tours and join one of the tours they have. They provide bicycles and show you around. Have fun in Beijing!
