Ride a bike and explore the best neighborhoods in this fun and varied Bike Tour Buenos Aires. It’s an experience we love and it has become an excellent alternative to enjoy our city!
We got on the comfortable beach cruiser bikes provided by the organizers of the tour, put our helmets on, and felt reassured by the fact that medical assistance, a bottle of mineral water and expert multilingual guides, all were included. We only had to start pedaling and enjoy a different morning. There is also an option at 2 pm for those who have trouble getting up early. Luckily, it didn’t rain that day, as we love the sun. All the same, rain gear is available for the tour, which is canceled only if it rains very heavily. These tours are carefully designed for all ages, taking into account the different situations that might arise.
The meeting point is Plaza San Martin located in the area of Retiro and close to the well-known Florida Street where most tourists walk around and buy leather goods and clothes, among many other products.
Our first tour took us to Puerto Madero, the neighborhood that is the most recent, expensive and visited by tourists and locals. Its old Docks have been renovated into first class restaurants, offices and lofts, with the best view of the city and the River Plate. At this point we are close to the ecological reserve, an area near the city where the environment and nature are protected. From there we continue to La Boca, a traditional port district which is the home of the most famous Argentine Football team, Boca Juniors. The great immigration wave that made Buenos Aires the city that it is today left its footprint there. It is the birthplace of tango and of traditional cafés. “Caminito” is a must see.
We continued our ride to San Telmo for its proximity to La Boca. It is the first neighborhood of Buenos Aires, inhabited by aristocratic families until the outbreak of the yellow fever in 1871, which obliged them to move to the north of the province of Buenos Aires. It is the quintessential neighborhood to learn about the historical heritage of the city.
Then we reached Plaza de Mayo, the site of all major political events in the country since the foundation of Buenos Aires. There we can see the Government House (Casa Rosada), the Cabildo, the Metropolitan Cathedral and the most important public buildings. A meeting point for demonstrations and the birthplace of the Group of Mothers and Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo, who peacefully claim for justice for their children and grandchildren who disappeared during the dictatorship.
The itinerary also includes The Immigrants’’ Hotel, Women’s Fountain, South Promenade, the Fountain of the Nereids, Catalinas Sur Towers in Retiro, Avellaneda Bridge, Curve of Rocha, Quinquela Martin Museum, Caminito street, and La Bombonera (Boca Juniors’ football arena), among others.
