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, 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.

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.
