Ciclovia events are held around the world but they started in Bogota. Closing off major street(s), it gives residents and visitors alike the chance to explore a city in a different way. Loved it!

This was A LOT of fun. We rented bikes and rode for 2 hours, 12 miles around the city. I highly recommend this, it is a good workout, and a great way to see the city. We had a food tour, so we didn’t stop for lunch, but would have loved to.

Every Sunday and holidays- streets are full of cyclists. We just watched - but probably shy have done a bike tour to really feel part of it. Kids and elderly cycle, roller blade, run in the streets. Great idea. Well done Bogotá.

Every Sunday, major streets close to traffic so that pedestrians can enjoy cycling, running, and walking on these streets.
Rent a bike or rent an e-scooter (like what I did) and ride along the main streets with locals! Such a fun experience.
I rode along Carrera 7 and it was busy and full of life!

The Ciclovía is one of Bogotá's most amazing phenomenons. If you happen to be in town during a Sunday or holiday do not hesitate and rent a bicycle and head out.

I have attached the map of the ciclovía with each place (green dots) I suggest to visit. You can choose which you like and visit in any order. I suggest taking Carrera 7 or 15 north, then head west on 116, take Boyacá south, then Av. El Dorado (Av. Cl. 26) east to parque Simón Bolivar. Finally you can head north on the bike path on Av. 30 to finish with lunch at the 12 de octubre neighborhood. That route will take you through very contrasting sectors on pf the city, I think it's a safe and complete overview of the city.

1. TEUSAQUILLO/LA SOLEDAD: Middle class neighborhood I told you about. Has a great vibe on Sundays, specially around the "Parkway" avenue.
2. LOURDES PARK: Very busy plaza on weekdays. On Sundays people head to the church there.
3. VIRREY PARK: Very popular park in an up-scale neighborhood.
4. USAQUÉN: Used to be the first town north of Bogotá, now absorbed into the city. Everything happens around the main square. Flea market on weekends.
5. NIZA: Middle class neighborhood which I really like. One of the few with a distinctive urban plan. Enter on Av. Suba and Calle 118.
6. HUMEDAL JUAN AMARILLO: Head west on the bike path that heads off along the Juan Amarillo River (it crosses Av. Boyacá right before the Makro Store and Titán shopping center) to the Juan Amarillo lake. It's a very interesting stop amidst a low income neighborhood.
7. SIMÓN BOLÍVAR PARK: Our biggest park and a great place on weekends.
8. 12 DE OCTUBRE NEIGHBORHOOD: Very traditional neighborhood. Now mostly commerce, it has one of the few still working public markets (plaza de mercado), which is very interesting. Just behind the plaza is "Doña Segunda" a very famous place to have lunch, their specialty is "huesos de marrano", which I love. Also try the arepas.

If you have time, you can head towards the poorer south of the city. If you stick to the ciclovía you should not have any problemas. You can keep going south along Av. Boyacá and then head back to parque Simón Bolívar on Carrera 50.

¡Have fun!

The Bogota's Ciclovia, open from 7 am until about 2 pm every Sunday, is a real treat. I mean, its 74 miles (120 km) of car-free bliss to walk, run or bike to your heart's content.

As a big plus, you are going to enjoy the sweet sight of thousands of beautiful Colombian women happily passing by in shorts, tights and other (sometimes skimpy) apparel that, as fellow men know, are part of the fuel needed for a happy life :)

Was expecting Sunday to be a little
lazy so was pleasantly surprised to see a main st closed to cars and filled with cyclists, families, tourists, locals all out. So many street food options, dancing, music, performances, and selling crafts and other items. Goes on for blocks, maybe a mile long. Def interesting and entertaining.

Every city needs to follow Bogota's footsteps here. I feel as though this event is just one of the many features of Bogota that really makes the city stand out. We didn't rent bikes, but just walked down the street and observed everyone. The atmosphere is very fun. Definitely worth checking out!

Very fun way to spend a Sunday in Bogota, but try to get a hold of a map before you set out! There are stands selling refreshments along the way so be sure to have some pocket money as well. Also, please wear a hat to protect yourself from sunburn. Bogota sun is deceptively strong.
