It goes all over the main spots of the south of the city and explores its stories: Plaza de Mayo, the historical center, Puerto Madero, Caminito, La Boca and San Telmo.
We leave from our meeting point located at 762, Hipólito Yrigoyen Av. willing to enjoy a bike tour with the perfect mix of history, bohemia, modernity and green spaces.
To start, we head to the historical center, with a stop at La Manzana de las Luces, affirming its relevance and contribution to the culture, politics and education of our country.
Next, we will visit the emblematic Plaza de Mayo, a witness of the most important events in the history of the Republic, from the founding of the city and the colonial years up to the present.
The following destination is Puerto Madero, a multimillion-worth undertaking that turned an abandoned area into the newest barrio in Buenos Aires and one of the most expensive in Latin-America.
Then, we keep looking for greenery and head towards the Reserva Ecológica* Costanera Sur (an ecological reserve).
After a little a break, we get in motion on our bikes once again towards La Boca. On the way, we’ll have one stop at Parque Lezama, where you will hear the interesting stories surrounding this park.
There, we’ll stop to enjoy drinking mate (local infusion) with some alfajores (traditional sandwich cookie).
We keep on cycling until we reach Caminito, where we’ll leave our bikes for a while and you’ll be encouraged to walk around this picturesque and colorful corner of Buenos Aires, with its beautiful little streets and tenement houses.
Of course, before coming back, we can’t miss a visit to the mythical Bombonera! On the way back from La Boca, we’ll finally have lunch! We’ll try a delicious local sandwich in a typical food truck.
On the final stage of our bike tour, we’ll reach one of the oldest barrios in the city, the beautiful San Telmo, with all its bohemia, antiques shops and Plaza Dorrego, a real Porteño square.
Finally, we’ll finish our biking tour at the meeting point.
