• Filtered Water
• Yerba mate – local traditional tea

Meeting in historic San Telmo (Peru 988), we begin our bike tour with a thorough orientation, introducing you to the city, your bicycle and each other. Pointing our front tire south, we pedal through the backstreets of one of the oldest barrios in Buenos Aires making our way towards Parque Lezama, the border of La Boca and San Telmo. Looping around La Boca we witness elaborate urban art, the famous Bombonera stadium and the birthplace of Tango in colorful Caminito. You then have time to explore on foot this vibrant port that once greeted millions of immigrants in the turn of the 20th century.

 

 

Back on our bikes, we navigate our way to a completely different world in the neighboring bubble of Puerto Madero. The contrast is very noticeable as you ride through the quiet, yet very modern streets in search of the 60 acre Ecological Reservation hidden in the back. Once our appetite has kicked in, we stop at the original parrilla on the Costanera Sur boardwalk to get a taste of local Asado Argentino. Taking 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. The privileged neighborhood of Recoleta is as far north as we get before we turn back south, but not before we stop and enter the famous cemetery in search of Evitas final resting place.

Making our way back through Micro Centro, all roads lead to the “Heart of the City” in the Plaza de Mayo where you will learn about why most Argentine historical events occurred in this very spot.  We familiarize ourselves with the Casa Rosada, Cabildo, the famous Catedral and then you’re free to discover more of the Plaza and it’s intriguing surroundings.

Our tour ends back at our meeting point in San Telmo (Peru 988)where we recapture the day and suggest some BA must do’s. Lasting approximately 7 hours, we 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.

*Note- This tour is not for everyone. It is for those who are confident cycling in urban settings. Although we ride more than half of the tour on bike trails it also includes parts in which we cycle alongside car traffic.  The total distance is 26km (16mi).  For less experienced riders we recommend checking out our Heart of the City and Parks & Plaza tours. 

• Although we ride at an easy and comfortable pace, we ask that you at least know how to ride a bike. Should you feel uncomfortable riding a bike, we may require you to ride a bit more before assuring that you’re comfortable with the bike before the tour begins.

Biking BA will cancel the tour in cases of extreme weather that compromise the safety of the guests which include lightning, thunder and/or flooding.  Biking BA provides rain ponchos and other measures to mitigate the weather, therefore, if the tour goes out within a two hour window of the scheduled start time and the client decides to cancel their booking they will be refunded 50% of their payment or given 100% credit to a future tour of equal or less value.

What Are Guests Saying About Their BBA Experience?

What powers us to keep growing and making our Biking Buenos Aires tours better each and every year? Well, besides our feet, its the warm reviews, social shares and love from our customers that pushes us to make BBA even better for our customers.

“I don’t usually do tours like this.. I tend to always just explore cities on my own and by foot. But I have to say, I’m so glad I decided to do a Biking Buenos Aires tour. I got to see all of the main parts of the city in one day and in style (the bikes are all the sky blue Argentinian color and have a retro vibe to them) I learned so much about the history of the city that I didn’t know about, and I met some awesome people who I’ve been hanging out with since. Our tour guides Corina and Angie were absolutely fantastic (never mind the fact that they’re both absolutely gorgeous!) Corina was our leader and history professor. She had this incredible way of telling stories of the past that painted such a vivid picture and really took you back. Angie was our protector and handywoman. She followed us, made sure traffic stopped for us (which is a hefty task here in BA), and got her hands dirty if anything happened with one of the bikes. Corina led and enlightened us and Angie kept us safe. Oh, and the included lunch was soooooo delicious. So grateful for this experience! Thanks to the whole team for being so awesome.” Audrianna T.

“Biking Buenos Aires gave me the opportunity to explore the city in a different way. I have been living in Buenos Aires for almost a year now and decided to take this tour; I must say that I saw and learned things that I never did before. Our guide Brett was very knowledgeable with lots of fun facts about the city and its history. She was always aware of everyone in the tour and our safety. Even though, we spent several hours in the bike it wasn´t tiring at all, since we had many stops and the city is completely flat. This tour is an excellent option for people all ages. I highly recommended!!!” Irving P.

Buenos Aires

“My friends, my sons and I were fortunate to book a city biking tour with Biking Buenos Aires just last week. It was awesome! Comfortable, informative and a ton of fun. Angie and the crew do an upstanding job. Angie is informative, enthusiastic, and knowledgable about the fascinating city. She is emotional as she describes the ups and downs of Buenos Aires history. From the architectural feats and fails, and govermental dictatorship to periods of direct democracy, Angie is cogent and engaging. On top of this, the meal they include along the waterfront is totally delicious! We love you guys and we’ll be back for all of your tours next time.” Dan H.
