Mexico City like other cities of the world is doing
big efforts in order to promote the use of bicycles
as a every day mean of transport due to the benefits
it provide: its fast, clean, healthy and cheap.
of the applied projects of an ambitious plan of
sustainable urban infrastructure are:
Allowance of bicycle entrance into the subway
lines all day long on sundays and on the
metrobus (BRT) every day from 5 to 7 at mornings
and from 10 to 12 at the nights.
Instalation of bicycle rental centers in
strategic hubs of the city where you can borrow
a free bike only by leaving an identity card.
Bicycle parkings in the Historical Centre.
Close for car traffic on Reforma Avenue and some
streets of the Historical Centre every sunday
morning from 8 to 14 hrs, allowing a free use of
the whole area for pedestrians, bycicle and
activity has achieved a great success among the
citizens, this "paseos" has became into one the
favorite leisure activities of the city on weekends,
an authentic urban party with music, and the
practice of different activities from aerobics and
yoga to tai chi.
use of bicycle on Reforma Avenue and the Historical
Centre on weekends is very pleasant, in less than an
hour you can bike from Diana Fountain to the Zocalo
discovering from a new point o view all the
monuments and buildings of this monumental axis,
built at the XIXth century by emperor Maximilian I
and nowadays the culture and financial hearth
of Mexico City.
to the great success of the bicycle rental centers,
if you are going to borrow one we recommend you to
arrive early in the morning, about half an hour
before the centers open (10 AM). Some hotels of the
area also offer free bicycle rentals.
