Book your BA Bike Tour: The Paris of South America
BA Bike Tour: The Paris of South America
We take you by bike around the residential barrios in the north of the city: Recoleta Area, Palermo Chico area, the Recoleta cemetery, the Floralis Generica, the woods and lakes in Palermo and the fashionable Palermo Soho.
Our bike tour includes a mate stop: we’ll spend around 30 minutes talking about different subjects. It will be a typical Argentinean mate session: we could talk about the drinking mate tradition, and other topics. Of course, feel free to ask whatever you want, we’ll be glad to share with you our local point of view.
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 for some traditional empanadas.
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.
