“Excellent experience.”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

A different way to know this great city. You can rent the bicycles, then choose a route you want between a big range of options through the city.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Every city needs to follow Bogota's footsteps here. I feel as though this event is just one of the many features of Bogota that really makes the city stand out. We didn't rent bikes, but just walked down the street and observed everyone. The atmosphere is very fun. Definitely worth checking out!

“Fun day out”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

Very fun way to spend a Sunday in Bogota, but try to get a hold of a map before you set out! There are stands selling refreshments along the way so be sure to have some pocket money as well. Also, please wear a hat to protect yourself from sunburn. Bogota sun is deceptively strong.

“The whole city comes out.”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

It can get a bit crowded - be careful, signal to each other, and don't blast through the clumps of riders/walkers/skaters/dog walkers, and you'll be fine.

“Just get out an do it!”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

The ciclovia is a fantastic institution in Bogotá and I would encourage anyone to go out and do it either for a stroll without the very real danger of being mown down by motorised vehicles or if you can borrow or rent a bike do that and see the city differently.
Rental bikes are available in the north of the city and some hotels such as Cité at Parque Virrey have bikes to rent.
The maps that are available are not the best but are better than nothing and be aware of where you are and what time it is. You don´t want to be 20km from your point of origin at 1355 for example.
Colombians are wonderfully warm and friendly people but be aware that once they are on wheels there is a change in their personality where all consideration for those around them disappears so do exercise caution and consider that what would be an erratic manoeuvre to you is entirely natural to them.
I would advise looking at a map and selecting a destination for a leisurely brunch if you are not looking to exercise too strenuously. If exercise is your thing be aware that it may be rather sporadic as there is a fair bit of stopping and starting at junctions and on a nice day it can be crowded unless you get out early.
