The new orange Buenos Aires city bikes system (EcoBici) is popping up in the streets. The totally renewed bike system has over 4000 points across the capital city. It is day and night available.
Do you want to discover Buenos Aires by bike? With more than 130km of bike lanes, it’s one of the best ways to discover Buenos Aires. However, keep your eyes open for the ongoing traffic. I suggest wearing a helmet at all times.
How to register?

Other ways to discover Buenos Aires?
