 A bike allows you to view all of the landmarks while also allowing you to discover the city's hidden gems. It also allows you to quickly transform into a local, even if only for the weekend. Cycling city breaks are becoming increasingly enticing, with bike rental on the rise, bike-sharing applications gaining traction, and transportation operators now offering cheaper and easier solutions for carrying bikes as luggage.

For those who enjoy a good spin, here's a list of cycle-friendly cities.

Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto's streets are built out in a grid layout going North-South and East-West, similar to the ancient Chinese capital of Chang'an, making it incredibly easy to navigate by bike. Despite the lack of bike-only lanes, the city has a reputation for being bike-friendly. If the roads are congested, certain 'pedestrian spaces' can be used, but only those with a sign declaring that this is permitted (and if you are, remember to weave your way through pedestrians carefully and respectfully). Most sites have a modest bicycle parking lot close to them, but if you're in the city center, you can utilize the larger ones, such as the WINGS Downtown parking lot or Kyoto Station.

Copenhagen, Denmark

In Copenhagen, the number of bikes officially surpassed the number of vehicles a few years ago. This is hardly surprising given the city's infrastructure, which includes bike lanes isolated from car traffic, traffic lights timed according to average cycling speed, and a network of Cycle Superhighways specifically created for commuters. Whether you're there to ride one of the world's oldest roller coasters at Tivoli Gardens, confront local counter culture in Christiania, or simply have a beer or a coffee by the seaside in Nyhavn, try it out for yourself by touring the city by bike. If you still have energy for a final sprint, visit the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers' eco-friendly gym.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Even the Dutch prime minister rides his bike around Amsterdam, and the Dutch are very proud of their bike culture. Renting an omafiets (Dutch-style bike) to zip around Amsterdam will provide you with a truly Dutch experience. Bike rentals are available at many hotels, including the Conscious Hotel, which is particularly eco-friendly. The hotel's sustainable features are explained on small tags or signs, and it's directly close to the gorgeous Vondelpark.
I have always wanted to tour the city of Poltava.
Poltava serves as a transit between Kharkov and Kiev, so while traveling I have always wondered what it will be like walking in the streets of this city.
So, finally I was able to visit the City for a tour, it was an amazing experience. 
As you all know Ukraine is not an English speaking country so communication sometimes can gets really bad. In this city everyone wanted to understand and communicate with us, I felt at home even more relaxed asking questions than in Kharkov where every Ukrainian seemed to be sad and angry at themselves.
