I wish more cities had this. On Sundays and other special occasions the city closes some major thoroughfares so people can bike safely. It is so much fun! And, so well organized. Plenty of places to stop for repairs if needed, drink and food. It is a great way to know the city.

Seemed really strange to see a major road in a city full of cyclists, walkers, joggers and dog walkers but with the street vendors and everyone in sports clothing it is fantastic fun.

Whether you visit the city for business or just for fun, you definitely have to go to the Ciclovia, it's not about riding a bike I think that is some show of support to this cultural cause, that it's now a tradition! Good for bogota!

We are pleased to see how supported biking is here. There is a well developed network of dedicated bike lanes in the city and they are well used. In addition every Sunday the city closes 70 miles of streets and they are filled with bikers and walkers. Wonderful friendly dimension to this sprawling city.

Main roads are closed for bikers, joggers, walkers, dog-walkers, roller-bladers....etc. every Sunday and on holidays from 7 am - 2 pm. This offers a nice safe way for you to enjoy riding your bike through the city without worrying about traffic or where the bike paths are.

Bogotá's ciclovía started in 1974 as an experiment - it really took off at the end of the seventies and has become one of the best bicycle public space examples in the world. Now many other cities (Paris, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Tel Aviv,... More

A different way to know this great city. You can rent the bicycles, then choose a route you want between a big range of options through the city.
