Full description
Your tour will start with some safety instructions for the ride, then put your helmet on and explore the city.

South Circuit

When choosing the South Circuit you will start to explore the city by San Telmo, which is the current old quarter and the area where time has stood still since the early 1900s. Stop at the Lezama Park and talk about the first foundation of Buenos Aires, immigration and the history of Tango. Then, go down through La Boca's limit, where you will stop to stare at La Bombonera, one of the hearts of the area and symbol of the local passion for football.

Visit the colorful area of Caminito, the first port of Buenos Aires, which today has become a district for local artists. After that, bike towards Puerto Madero, the second city harbor, which evolved into the most modern neighborhood in Argentina, redefining the skyline of the city. From there, continue to the Ecological Reserve, a 865-acre nature reserve that lies between the city and the Rio de la Plata. The last part of our tour will be at the Plaza de Mayo, where Buenos Aires was definitively founded back in 1580. See the Old Cabildo (city hall), Metropolitan Cathedral (the former home for Pope Francis) and the Casa Rosada (the presidential offices). 

North Circuit

If you prefer the North Circuit, you will see the heart of Buenos Aires' late 19th-century history, parks, and architecture. Discover the energy of downtown Buenos Aires, across the business district of the city center. You will then head to the hustling and bustling area of Retiro and Plaza San Martin, where you'll see magnificent palaces and architectural icons, products of Belle Epoque. A few stops later, the pace slows down as you take in Recoleta, the “barrio” best known for its cemetery, cafes, ice cream, and museums.

Continuing north to Palermo, you'll pass the "Floralis Generica" (giant metal flower), the house of general San Martin and the Museum of Contemporary Art on your way to the wonderful open space of the Parks and the picturesque Rose Garden. On the way back, you'll stop at one of the main meeting points of BA, The Congress Square, right next to the magnificent building that holds the Legislative Power.

After 4 hours of biking through the most important landmarks of Buenos Aires, you will return to the starting point to finish your tour.
