Overview

Live the city from another perspective cycling its streets off the tourist path with our cyclist team.
Open your eyes to the biggest art gallery in Mexico City: its streets. Chilango urban artists translate its traditions, history, and culture into the concrete canvas of the walls.
Calmly ride your way through the colorful barrios and first districts of current Mexico City; from the hippest Roma-Condesas pop-culture to the Obrera Doctores social outcries, the streets are swarmed with a public-space-reclaiming Street art that brings art out of museums connecting communities around it.
Get to know the stories of those who have built the identity of the chilangos, the people of this city, through interesting facts and some historical background by our local guide in our small-group tour limited to ten people.
And what better way to end than enjoying some tasty chilango street food; theres something for everyones taste and diets.

    A must do bike tour in Mexico City! Great way to explore the city and see different areas. Getting to stop and go into Biblioteca Vasconcelos was amazing, all the street art was fantastic and the street tacos at the end of the tour were delicious!

    Ivan was a fantastic guide for street art of Mexico City. Really enjoyed the places we visited and the opportunity to cycle in the city.

    Our group enjoyed the bicycle tour. The operator did a really great job of making sure we felt safe during the entire experience. They stop traffic so we can continue moving safely. Areas we rode (through parks) in were packed with pedestrians later in the day, I recommend riding early.

    Excellent bike tour! Alberto ensured that we rode safely through traffic. His hand signals were very helpful in getting us through intersections with heavy traffic. He imbued the tour with a love for Mexico and provided lots of insight into the history and pre-Hispanic culture. The tour of authentic or “real” neighborhoods made it much more than a city bike tour. The authentic lunch of tlacoyo topped it off. Alberto was patient and kept a pace that we were comfortable with. Each bike came with bottled water. A fabulous tour in every respect!

    I love street art and this tour was absolutely fantastic. Our guide was patient and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend!

    The art bike tour was great. I asked to see the “real Mexico” and that’s where Alberto, my guide, took me. We didn’t go to Condesa and Roma that were listed in the description, which I was glad for b/c those are upscale neighborhoods with more tourists. Alberto was a very nice and kind person who knows the ins and outs of Mexico City well. He claimed his English wasn’t good, but we were able to communicate very well and even got into some real discussions about politics and life. I would recommend this tour. Just as a note the tour is arranged with a bike rental/tour company based in Mexico City, not the one listed when you book.
