We take you by bike around the residential barrios in the north of the city, the Recoleta cemetery, the Floralis Generica, the woods and lakes in Palermo and the fashionable Palermo Soho.
We start this bike tour at our shop in Palermo, on 2269 Armenia St., ready to see a traditional and aristocratic part of town, an area with residential neighborhoods, French-style buildings and beautiful parks.
Our first destination is the Cementerio de la Recoleta, the oldest cemetery in town and a real work of art by itself. There you’ll be encouraged to leave the bikes aside and walk around to better look at the impressive tombs and mausoleums, where the remains of artists, politicians and great personalities of the Argentine history rest.
We grab our bikes once again and cycle through the panoramic bike path on Avenida Del Libertador, heading to the Bosques de Palermo area.
Before that, we’ll stop by the Floralis Generica park, a new icon of BA, an oasis in the middle of the city. In a place like this, it’s not possible for an Argentine to miss the opportunity of drinking mate (local infusion) with some alfajores (traditional cookie sandwich), and we’re doing it, of course!
Then, we’ll get caught up in the tranquility of its woods and lakes to simply ride around and enjoy the view.
Now is time for lunch, so we’ll stop at a typical food truck to try a local sandwich.
We will also visit El Rosedal and the planetarium, a futuristic site that’s become an unquestionable landmark of Buenos Aires.
When we head back, we’ll ride through an area of exclusive restaurants, bars and design shops, in the flourishing Palermo Soho, finishing the biking tour at our shop.
*Rosedal is not open on Mondays.
