Bogotá Bike Tour
A four-hour exploration by bike of central Bogotá, during which we'll visit the historical center, La Candelaria, a traditional fruit market, a coffee factory, street art, and hopefully a game of tejo, Colombia's national sport. We'll also pass by landmarks such as city parks, the Plaza de Toros, Museo Nacional, and experience the economic and arquitectural diversity of different neighborhoods. Part-way through the tour, we'll stop in the Parque Nacional to sample fruit salads, juices, barbacued meats, corn-on-the-cob and other traditional Colombian street foods.
The route, of about 12 kilometers, is mostly flat, and the tour is casual, with frequent stops.

From there, we'll ride north to a fruit market and taste from Colombia's huge variety of exotic, tropical fruits,
and then walk across the street for a game of tejo, Colombia's national sport.
After that, we'll ride up Carrera Septima, past Independence Park, the Bullfighting Stadium, the National Museum
and through the La Merced neighborhood, which feels like a bit of London with its English architecture. From there,
we enter the National Park to try fruit salads, juices, corn-on-the-cob and grilled meats.
Our stomachs filled, we ride west through the quiet and elegant Teusaquillo neighborhood to Calle 26, where we'll
admire some of Bogota's largest street murals. After photographing a sculpture by Colombia Fernando Botero, we ride
past the Memorial Center, dedicated to documenting human rights violations, and stop in a small coffee roaster.
Here, we see how Colombia's world-famous arabica beans are selected and roasted for export. Then we'll enjoy a
fresh brew of those delectable beans.
Finally, we'll ride back to our starting point in La Candelaria, finishing off with one of the few uphills on this
mostly-flat ride. The whole route covers about 12 kms.
