Ciclovía (Bike Path Day)

If you want to do some outdoor sports (walking, skating or bicycling) and at the same time get to know Bogota, the “Ciclovía” is a perfect opportunity for you to do some sightseeing.

Each Sunday and holiday the main streets of Bogotá are blocked off for the event to become Car-free.   From 7 am to 2 pm, runners, skaters and bicyclists take over the streets.

Throughout the Ciclovía, you would find convenient and organized stands to stop for fruit, fresh squeezed orange or mandarin juice or bottled water.  The Ciclovía is well-organized and has a lot of police presence.

The Ciclovía has taken place in Bogotá every Sunday and Holiday for the past 35 years, (since 1976) and Bogotá is the second bike friendliest city in the world after Amsterdam, having a long network of bike routes for its citizens.

Enjoy!
