Santiago Bike Tour

We'll begin our Santiago Bike Tour as we head to bohemian Barrio Bellavista. Weaving between cobbled streets and colorful murals. We make a pit stop at the house of famous Chilean poet and cultural icon, Pablo Neruda. There will be time to stop and enjoy the old-school architecture and appreciate your favorite street art.

Next stop Patronato… Santiago’s Middle Eastern, Korean and Peruvian district. You’ll discover how these immigrants have integrated into Chilean culture and why they settled here during the days of the Ottoman empire, Korean War and the economic downfall of our northern neighbors.

Zoom zoom zooooom... Along the north side of the Mapocho river to La Vega Central, Santiago’s largest fruit, vegetable and everything in-between market. Here you’ll park your noble steed and discover the market by foot, allowing more room to weave through the aisles of stalls! We maneuver south over the river about 2 blocks to fish around in the Mercado Central, Santiago's largest seafood market in the downtown area. Bring your camera because La Bicicleta Verde has been visiting both of these markets since 2008, so locals are happy to take pictures with us... and you

We take a break for lunch and let you guys to your thing! We recommend out favourite eating spot around the office so you can eat some well earned Chilean cuisine before beginning the tour again.

We make our way to the Providencia neighborhood while on a casual cruise through the parks. No need to take down your kick stand as Balmaceda and Bustamante parks are smooth riding. Our wheels pause for some discussions of the surrounding area and to enjoy some green life. By this point, the tour group should have a friendly dog that attaches itself to the tour as lovely guardian. PS: You’ll find out just why you see SO MANY people kissing and hugging in Santiago parks.

Time to work up some sweat and head into the city roads, cycling through cobbled streets and smooth cycle paths. You’ll understand why Santiago’s voted South America’s most ‘cycle friendly city.’ We will visit Plaza Italia and the new Gabriela Mistral Cultural (GAM) centre. The rad-looking GAM centre sits in the hip Lastarria/Santa Lucia Neighborhood. GAM’s astounding architectural design is worth lots of pics. The neighborhood has funky bars to come back and visit as well.

Together we will go-go-go see the Presidential Palace and discuss the 1973 military coup. Our guide will take you straight to the heart of Chilean civil society. They will discuss the history, architecture, and fascinating but sad stories. Fatema Mernissi was talking about this tour when she stated that “travel is about learning, about crossing boundaries and mastering the fear of strangers, about making the effort to understand other cultures and thereby empowering yourself.”

We will then head back to the bike base together. You can exchange pics, fill up your water bottle, and make use of our free wifi. Your green guru will hang around to chill and help with any questions you still have. We are here to the end to draw on your maps about places to go and help with other tour bookings... ride-on!!
