Bike Tour Buenos Aires, a guide for you to enjoy the city in the most sustainable and fun way: By bike!
Given its magnitude, this city has approximately a thousand blocks of bike paths. There are 100km of bike lanes that cross the most beautiful neighborhoods of Buenos Aires and that are available to enjoy the air of the city at any time!
The main idea of this tour is to combine the history and culture of the city, along with green spaces, museums, typical French-style palaces and the most important buildings in Buenos Aires.
We are going to visit the neighborhoods of San Telmo, Puerto Madero, Recoleta and Palermo with their huge forests, and the best tourist places, in a single journey so you don’t miss anything!
We remind you to take into account your physical fitness, since it is a stretch of approximately 16kms (3.30 or 4 hours, depending on the speed with which you travel it). Likewise, it is a very central route, so you will be able to cut it where you like the most! You will even find many strategic points to stop to rest and enjoy a little.
Are you ready for our Bike Tour Buenos Aires? Here we go!
Leaving from Giuffra Passage, at its intersection with Balcarce Street, in San Telmo, we will take the United States St. to cross to the ground and go through the Old Docks of Puerto Madero. In this part of the tour you will be able to open up to the Costanera Sur and find the Ecological Reserve. See The Woman Bridge along with other places to visit in Puerto Madero. To know more about what to do in this neighborhood, here we leave you a note about it!
Following the route and, leaving Puerto Madero through the North Dock, you will run into San Martín Plaza, already entering the Retiro neighborhood. This huge square in the area is an excellent place to rest and breathe some fresh air among its imposing trees. If you are interested in taking a detour, a few blocks away you can reach the Microcentro of the city, where the Plaza de Mayo, the Congress and the Pink Hoyse are located.
We are going to continue along Av. Libertador to the Recoleta side, and you will notice that here the street changes its name to Av. Figueroa Alcorta. You will see the Law University, and, a few meters away, the Floralis Generic. Very close to there, are the Recoleta Cultural Center, Plaza Francia (with its artisan fair) and the National Museum of Fine Arts. Here we leave you our note about everything you can visit in Recoleta. Without a doubt, it is a neighborhood that deserves a stop so you can visit the Cemetery and enjoy its bars!
If for this instance, you feel tired, we recommend hitting the lap and going back to the starting point. Although, to tell the truth, Palermo is too close to Recoleta! Let’s make the last effort and finish the tour in its entirety …
If you have made a detour to Plaza Francia and the Cemetery, it will be convenient for you to follow the path along Av. Libertador. If you stayed at Floralis Generic, it means you are on Av. Figueroa Alcorta. Along this route, you will find typical French-style houses that are the Embassies of different countries.
We continue along Av. Figueroa Alcorta and you will pass very close to the Museum of Latin American Art. A few blocks away, you will see the imposing Palermo Parks, a green lung in the middle of the city, as well as being a strategic stop to rest, hydrate and enjoy the beautiful and huge Buenos Aires neighborhood. In this area you will find the Japanese Garden and its typical oriental style, with the Rose Garden (Rosedal), the Galileo Galilei Planetarium, the Buenos Aires Ecopark and the Botanical Garden. In this other note, we tell you everything you can do in Palermo. In the same area, you will find the Paseo de la Infanta, a gastronomic zone full of bars and places to eat with the landscape of the Palermo’s forests. Here we leave you all the information!
If you dare to continue a little longer, you will reach Aeroparque, where you will see the Memorial Park and you can stop for a moment to enjoy the North Coast and its charm.
The ideal is to return to our starting point, to enjoy in more detail the Neighborhood of San Telmo and give a typical Buenos Aires style closure to our tour. You will be able to go through the Colón Theater and, if you did not go to the beginning, you will be able to go to the Plaza de Mayo, see the Pink House and the Congress. Continuing along Adolfo Alsina Street and turning into Balcarce, to walk through the colonial streets of this picturesque neighborhood, along with the Cartoon Road and the San Telmo Market (Carlos Calvo and Bolívar).
