If you are short of time but still want to cover more ground in Bogota, this is the best option for you to have a more comprehensive perspective of the city.

Bogotá is the best cycling city in South America, and it has sprawled around its vibrant and ever-changing downtown. That’s why this 3-and-half hour bike tour is perfect if you want to see a bigger face of the city.

Meet our guide holding the company’s yellow umbrella, and the rest of the group at Chorro de Quevedo Square. He and the technical assistant will hand you the bikes with their helmets. Once everything is set, adventure will start.

The guide will firstly 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.

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. Before going back to La Candelaria, you will have the chance to cycle through hidden neighborhoods where graffiti has become a way of facing social issues.

On top of that, you will taste traditional snacks and drinks in local places and finish the day by having a rewarding planting-tree experience.

This is more than a glimpse, is a tour specially made for you to experience Bogota’s mixtures.

This tour has a suggestion of USD 10.
