With over 130 km of bicycle lanes and a free public bicycle sharing system (Ecobici), cycling is a great way both to explore the city.
The city tourist board offers several bicyle tours of Buenos Aires' neighbourhoods. Meanwhile, to explore at your own pace, bikes can be borrowed for free 24 hours a day from more than 100 stations across the city through the 24-hour Ecobici bike share scheme.
Bikes can be borrowed for up to an hour at a time, Monday - Friday, and for two hours at the weekend. If you wish to continue using the system for longer, you need to drop off the bike and wait 5 minutes before taking a second one.
