Discover the city’s historical, social and architectural contrasts.

Come join us any day at 11am in the Urban Bikign shop located in the heart of San Telmo, excited for a great bike ride. There, we´ll be waiting for you with refreshments and our fleet of bikes ready to ride. Choose from our selection of mountain bikes, city cruisers and our notorious bambucicletas.

After a brief historical explanation, we point our wheels south, pedaling through the oldest "barrio" of Buenos Aires: San Telmo, the historic city center. Our first stop of interest is in Lezama Park where we introduce the first settlement of Buenos Aires and how immigration shaped the city culturally, structurally, demographically, etc.

Ready to ride again, we move further south towards La Bombonera - the Boca Jr soccer team’s stadium. Eager to explore more, we dive deeper into the city's Art District of La Boca visiting the famous “caminito.” Surrounded by music, colorful “conventillos” and tango dancers, we discuss precisely why this once busy port turned into the current day "postcard" of Buenos Aires.

Back on our bikes, we cruise towards Puerto Madero, a huge port project that we started in the end of the XIX century yet became obsolete. After almost 80 years of abandonment, it was redeveloped into the most modern and sophisticated district of Buenos Aires. We stop for lunch at a typical "parrilla" to refuel and appreciate the art form that is "Asado Argentino" (BBQ). Veggie options available!

Riding around this neighborhood we enter a really particular park: ”La Reserva Ecológica Costanera Sur.” This protected ecological reservation has a very peculiar story to tell and is a wonderful escape from the busy "Porteño" life. *Closed on Mondays and muddy conditions.

Our last stop of the day is located in the very heart of Buenos Aires - Plaza de Mayo. There, our story concludes as we’ll be able to feel the rich Argentinean history and get an understanding as to why this very spot is, and has always been, the focus point for many public demonstrations.

A tour that you cannot miss if you really want to discover Buenos Aires' must see neighborhoods; experience the newest part of the city, the most traditional places, and above all, the strong eclecticism of Buenos Aires and its people.
