Buenos Aires Bike Tour: South or North Circuit

2. Buenos Aires Bike Tour: South or North Circuit

After meeting your guide at the local partner's office, listen to a quick safety briefing before receiving your bike (a comfy beach cruiser) and helmet. If you choose the South Circuit, begin with a cycle around San Telmo, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, known for its well-preserved colonial architecture. See its many attractions, including the Russian Orthodox Holy Trinity Church, San Telmo Market and Dorrego Square, the heart of San Telmo. Observe life in the square’s cafes, bars, and shops, and watch for spontaneous tango performances – as San Telmo is the center of tango in Buenos Aires.  Next, ride into La Boca, Buenos Aires’ most colorful neighborhood, where a European atmosphere has remained strong since the neighborhood was settled by Italian immigrants. The district is popular with visitors for its brightly painted buildings, especially along the Caminito – the neighborhood’s main (pedestrianized) drag where you can see local artists selling their work.  Then, head to the newest neighborhood in the city: Puerto Madero. Its old docks have been transformed into restaurants, lofts, and offices, which boast incredible views of the city. From there, continue to the Ecological Reserve, an 865-acre nature reserve that lies between the city and the Rio de la Plata. Finally, visit Plaza de Mayo, the scene of all major political events in the country since the founding of Buenos Aires. Take a look at the Government House (Casa Rosada), the Cabildo, the Metropolitan Cathedral, and the main public buildings.  If you go for the North Circuit, start the tour in Puerto Madero, the newest neighborhood in the city. From there, ride through Recoleta, famous for its French-style buildings and large parks. See Recoleta Cemetery, where legendary Argentinians like Eva Peron (aka Evita) are buried, and pass through Barrio Norte, an informal name given to a lively section of Recoleta around Santa Fe Avenue. Then, head toward the district of Palermo – Buenos Aires’ largest neighborhood. Ride to Palermo Woods, the city’s largest park, where you can admire its rose garden with more than 400 rose bushes. See more of the park’s sights, including the Buenos Aires Zoo, the Botánical Garden, Plaza Italia, Galileo Galilei Planetarium and the Spaniard’s Monument.  Throughout your tour, your entertaining and informative guide will give facts about Buenos Aires’ rich history and provide commentary about the sites you’re passing. You’ll also rest periodically to stretch your legs and take photos, ending your tour in San Telmo.

Buenos Aires Bike Tour

3. Buenos Aires Bike Tour

Lasting approximately 7 hours, you'll follow many bike trails and stop around 15 times to drink and learn about Yerba Mate, take photos, eat delicious asado and enjoy a fun, creative and informative tour led by expert bilingual guides.  Meeting in historic San Telmo (Peru 988), the tour begins with a thorough orientation, introducing you to the city, your bicycle and each other. Heading south, you'll pedal through the backstreets of one of the oldest barrios in Buenos Aires, towards Parque Lezama, the border of La Boca and San Telmo. Looping around La Boca you'll see elaborate urban art, the famous Bombonera stadium and the birthplace of the  Tango dance in colorful Caminito. You then have time to explore on foot this vibrant port that once greeted millions of immigrants at the turn of the 20th century. Back on the bikes, and you'll head to the more tranquil and modern area of Puerto Madero, in search of the 60 acre ecological reservation hidden in the back. You'll have worked up an appetite by now, and will stop at the original parrilla on the Costanera Sur boardwalk to get a taste of local Asado Argentino. Take advantage of the plentiful salad bar, build your own sandwich with your choice of pork, chicken, or chorizo (egg/cheese option for vegetarians). Buen Provecho! Full and satisfied, it’s time to cruise along the docks towards the main transportation hub of Buenos Aires known as Retiro. You'll reach the privileged neighborhood of Recoleta, which is as far north as you'll go before turning back south, not before entering the famous cemetery in search of Evita's final resting place. Cycling back through Micro Centro, all roads lead to the “Heart of the City” in the Plaza de Mayo where you'll learn why most Argentine historical events occurred in this very spot.  Find out about the Casa Rosada, Cabildo, the famous cathedral and then you’re free to discover more of the Plaza and it’s intriguing surroundings. The tour brakes back at the meeting point in San Telmo (Peru 988).

What people are saying about La Recoleta Cemetery

Carlos shared not only his beautiful city, which has wonderful bike trails and level terrain, which made for an enjoyable way to explore the city for anyone who can ride a bike but also shared himself. He gave us a personalized lesson in how he enjoys Mate, lunched with at street food vendor whom he visited for years and provided history, stories of his city and her people. This wa a private tour which made it even more special and he a busted the sites visited to best suit our personal interest. I encourage you not to miss this tour.

Great day with lots of good info and enough breaks to avoid over heating. Carlos knew everything about the city, its history and current state of affairs. All of my BA and Argentina questions were answered with accuracy and respect. I love to support small business owners around the world and would book again in a heart beat! This is the perfect way to see BA.

A really great way to see the city

We saw many sites of interested we may otherwise have missed. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The route choice with city and reserve contrast was such a great experience. Helmets are provided but there are a couple busy roads (unavoidable in a city like this) so personally I wouldn’t take a child riding solo unless they were an experienced cyclist.

Very informative tour. Great guide. However, you should be used to cycling in the big city.

Great day out with Olaf. Knowledgeable, cool mini activities throughout the day. Loved it.
