Bogotá Bike Tour

2,011 reviews
Energetic Bogotá has grabbed global headlines as a bike-friendly city, but finding the best routes can be a challenge for first-time visitors. Grab a bike to explore the city with a guide to lead the way, pedaling through La Candelaria, Plaza de Toros, and neighborhoods with colorful street art. Break up the mostly-flat route with stops at a fresh fruit market and a coffee factory.

When we visited there was a lot of cleaning and general maintenance going on. The fountains were out of order which was disappointing. The main building was not open so we didn’t get to go on the roof to admire the view. The grounds are pleasant to walk round

Masterpiece of architect Rogelio Salmona, who always used local bricks for his buildings. The library is located in a beautiful park with lake and nice paths for walking. Good plan for a relaxed day.

great library, with fantastic resource for children, both inside and outside. It's right on the edge of the park. There's a rollerblading track. Inside, is a good children's section and a nice café. It's one of the nicest designs for libraries, or for public buildings in the city. It's worth stopping by.

Yes, it's just a library (boring!). But the surroundings are more important than the books and even the cool architecture. Walk the building (it's free) and then take a look at the park. If you don't have enough time to go through Parque Simón Bolívar (right across the street) and the day is sunny enough (lucky day in Bogotá), you can see the amazing mountains of the city from here, in a quiet environment, far from tourists. Even outside of the library, this is a great spot to sit and read, which is what I normally do: take a 15 minute walk from home and forget about the world. Mornings there's a lot of professional rollerbladers practicing around the library and weekends some families gather with pets.

This library was both a beautiful sight and a respite from the city. It is set in a slight bowl, so that you cannot see the city and it cannot see you. : ) Once inside, you'll hopefully marvel at the exquisite design. Well worth a visit.
