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?
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.

Very enjoyable 1:1 cycling introduction to Mexico City on an electric bike which was a new experience! Jonas combined historical info with modern architecture and an intro to mouth watering sweet tamale and coffee in a small cafe run by indigenous people. The cycling was a mix of cycle lanes and roads with some weaving around traffic so this is a trip for confident cyclists, which give a good feel for the city and its varied architecture. Thanks Jonas, definitely worth repeating!
