Ciclovía – 70 miles of car-free streets

by Alex on Jan.16, 2010, under What to do in Bogotá

07:00 – 14:00 Sunday and festivals

On Sundays and festivals over 70 miles of Bogotá’s streets are closed to traffic between the hours of 07:00 and 14:00 for the ciclovía. Now a worldwide phenonomen, it is maintained that the ciclovía originated here in Bogotá. More than just a massive network of car-free cycling, running, rollerblading and walking, there are stations throughout the ciclovía at which you can take part in free dance and and aerobics classes. It is said that between 1.5 and 2 million Bogotanos take part in the ciclovía every week.

Free guided tours of Bogotá’s historic centre

South-west corner of Plaza de Bolívar
Carrera 8 with Calle 10

Free guided tours of Bogotá’s historic centre are given by tourist police (in Spanish) at 10:00 and 14:00 daily, well worth joining in even if you don’t speak the lingo – there will often people people who can translate and if not you still get to see all the cool stuff…
