This Bogotá biking tour offers a new perspective of the Capital. Some people say the best way to see a city is from above. We believe the best way to feel a city is on a bike, and Bogotá is a treat to explore on two wheels. Our local guide will lead you safely through its labyrinth of vibrant streets that are packed with history.
First, you will know La Candelaria historical neighborhood. Then the Bogotá biking tour will lead you to Independence Park, Parkway Boulevard, and Bolívar Square. We aim to show you how the center of the city connects with other areas not so far from each other. So, enjoy a little exercise while learning and exploring the capital.
Walking just doesn’t do justice to a city as big and varied as Bogotá, so hop on and join us in this bike tour through Bogotá’s history, development and culture.
Bogotá is packed full of history. That’s why this 4-hour private tour is designed to show a bigger face of this massive city and its more than 500 years of history. If you finish the tour wanting to know more about the history of the city center, we invite you to take part in our graffiti tour in La Candelaria to keep discovering hidden treasures.
The tour will start when our driver picks you up at your hotel. Then he will drive you to El Chorro de Quevedo. Your guide and the technical assistant will hand you the bikes with their helmets.
Once everything is set, the adventure will start. The guide will first take you to the three founding plazas in La Candelaria to understand how the city has changed over time. From its indigenous beginnings to Spanish colonialism, independence, and modern times. Then, you will cycle along the seventh avenue, originally a salt road in indigenous times that now gathers Colombians of all walks.
Next, you will stop by the National Park, half forest-reservoir, half-cultural hub. A typical weekend gathering spot for Bogotá’s denizens, where we will discuss broader changes in Colombia as a whole.
Afterwards you will take the bike roads to the Parkway Boulevard, part of La Soledad’s neighborhood, a natural path full of trees, before crossing El Dorado Avenue, the road that takes you to the airport.
As the final part of the bike tour, you will taste a traditional drink in a local place. Once you have rested your feet, the driver will take you back to your hotel and we’ll call it a day.
