Jacqui de Klerk Lonely Planet

In what is probably the best cycling city in South America, this is the best bike outfit. You can rent your own and take advantage of 375km of dedicated trails or choose from an array of tours that, on occasion, pedal into neighborhoods that would otherwise be no-go. Tours leave daily at 10:30am and 1:30pm from the La Candelaria office.

Highlights include La Candelaria, a fruit market – watch those spice vendors with their super-hot wares! – graffiti tours, a caffeine-fueled spin around the local coffee roasters, the red-light district, and day and multi-day tours outside Bogotá.
