There are various exciting ways to discover Lima. Obviously riding a combi is one way. Another is to take a LimaWalk and discover Lima walking. Or you could decided to go on a bicycke with BikeTours of Lima. Some people might argue that Lima is far too dangerous for biking, but this is absolutely not the case. BikeTours says on their own website:
“…the tours are carried out mainly over bike lanes, beautiful parks, wide sidewalks, one way streets and always on flat areas. That is what make our tours suitable for people of all ages and levels.”
BikeTours offers three different tours. One could choose for the Bay Tour. This means biking in Miraflores, Barranco and Chorrillos all along the malecon (the seaside boulevard). This is a tour of about 4 hours and is very relaxing. Another option would be the Urban Tour. This 3-hour tour takes in Miraflores and a part of San Isidro. An option which is only available on Sundays is the Downtown Tour, going to Centro de Lima.
The prices are very reasonable and they include guides, bike, minor accident insurance, helmet, locks, snack and bottle of water. And to make this offer even more interesting, you will get a 20% discount with BikeTours of Lima in case you bring along the Rutas Recomendables Combi Map.
The office of BikeTours is in Miraflores in Calle Bolivar, next to Restaurant Patagonia. If you are craving a good steak after your bike tour, this would be the place to go.
