The main street through Bogota closes just for Ciclovia. I rented a bike from a little tour company and had a guide show stop and show us attractions and talk about Colombian history. It was nice, a good activity to do for half a day or however long you want to ride for. The streets are filled with others doing... More

The ciclovia is a fantastic day out. There are people of all ages, dressed for all weathers out enjoying the traffic free streets. As a wheeler I love it. Bogota sidewalks are not the most accessible, so take advantage of the streets!

This is a great way to go around the city, feel the vibe and breath with no cars involved! The ciclovía allows you to get to all kind of places (historical, natural, commercial...) only by walking or riding a bicycle on a safe and relaxed environment.

Awesome to see so many carreras y calles closed motorists - brimming with walkers, runners, cyclists, skaters, and so on. It's beautiful! Such a warm feeling in the parts of the city that are included in the route.

The traffic and air quality in Bogota are both bad so shutting the streets on Sunday for walking, biking and whatever is a great idea. We took a stroll around the Park 93 neighborhood and figured out the route of the street closings it was fun and great introduction to the city.

A fantastic idea (about 20 years old) to close the main streets to traffic on Sunday and let people cycle or walk around the centre. Great day for cycle tours - the graffiti tour is highly recommended! The city centre changes totally - no traffic noise or fumes - it simply becomes a friendlier place for walking around.

Take advantage every Sunday in Bogotá to exercise and ride in the ciclovía when they close many streets in Bogotá between 7 am and 2 pm. I rented a bicycle from Bogotravel tours in the heart of La Candelaria (the historic part of Bogotá) for $25,000 COP (about $13) for 4 hours. Bogotravel tours will give you a map and... More

Take a bike and get to know Bogotá and its people in a efficient way. I like the Ciclovia of the Av 7a. You can go to la Candelaria. A lot of people and music. Never take the eyes from your bikes...if you do count with the fact that they will dissapear.
