The hidden gems of Chapultepec Park, Condesa/Roma and the city center - see more in less time!


Feeling the wind in your hairs while seeing the best of Mexico City! Biking in MC has become fashionable, and fun. On Sundays, various streets are reserved for bikers only; the government has installed an ambitious eco-bike sharing program, new cycle paths. . . Mexico City traffic has a bad reputation, but drivers are gradually adapting themselves to the bikes. So why not try this ecological transport to discover in a few hours the best this city has to offer?

We start our ride depending on your location and the bike renting options nearby. The Chapultepec park is a highlight, peaceful and lively with visitors and attractions. We then visit the architectural art-déco highlights of hip and green Condesa and Roma, Alameda park and back via Paseo de la Reforma.

This tour is a nice complement to a walking tour downtown. We can also focus on culinary hotspots, if you're a real foodie! Not yet convinced? Check out internet videos of cycling in Mexico City: both stylish and enjoyable. Soon to come: e-bike tours!

Itinerary

- Chapultepec park, with its lake, the baths of Moctezuma (the last Aztec emperor), several monuments and the History Museum (Chapultepec Castle).
- famous art-déco and modernist buildings of Condesa, its beautiful Mexico Park and hip bars
- Roma, a bohemian neighborhood with art galleries popping up every month.
- Ciudadela crafts market, Alameda Park and surroundings (Fine Arts Palace, Juarez complex).
- On our way back, we spot some of Mexico City's most famous monuments, such as the Monument for the Revolution and the Angel of Independence.

Here you find an example itinerary with more details on the visited points: www. routeyou. com/route/view/247587/cycle-route-mexico-city-bike-tour. en. We can also focus on food stalls and markets, as biking makes you hungry (see my Tasting Tour)!

In case we can use bikes from your hotel or from a free rental station, you get a light lunch on the way for free!

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: There are several bike rental options depending on your location.
- Ferrocarril de Cuernavaca bike station, corner with Volcán street in Lomas de Chapultepec near Polanco and Reforma av. (you can take a Reforma double decker bus - direction: KM 13 - and get off at the Petroleros roundabout, turn at the street at the cycling bridge, and walk 100 meters)
- Roma neigbourhood: Av. Cuauhtemoc and Alvaro Obregon (Puskhin garden).
- Downtown area, Alameda: Poray at Hotel Fontan on Reforma av.

Please book this tour at least 48 hours upfront, so I can ensure availability of bikes to rent.
Van or public transportation pickup at extra cost.

End location: After returning the bike at the rental, I can give you directions to go back to your hotel or give recommendations of nearby visits.

Duration: 4 hours

In weekends, total time might be less because of lighter traffic. For less experienced bikers and a more relaxing experience, Sunday is recommended for this tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jonas is a much in-demand tour guide and I feel fortunate that we were able to book him for our bike tour of Mexico City. It was a wild, crazy day as we wove in and out of Mexico City's crazy traffic. Jonas was very interested to know of our interests so as to tailor the bike excursion to our tastes. This led to a very challenging but rewarding ride to Chapultepec Park and the Diego Rivera waterworks - a highlight of our ride. While we ended the ride pretty exhausted (with sore seats!), we saw a lot!
