URBAN GALLERY Mexico City Street Art Bike Tour
Live the city from another perspective cycling its streets off the tourist path with our cyclist team.
Open your eyes to the biggest art gallery in Mexico City: its streets. Chilango urban artists translate its traditions, history, and culture into the concrete canvas of the walls.
Calmly ride your way through the colorful barrios and first districts of current Mexico City; from the hippest Roma-Condesa’s pop-culture to the Obrera Doctores’ social outcries, the streets are swarmed with a public-space-reclaiming Street art that brings art out of museums connecting communities around it.
Get to know the stories of those who have built the identity of the chilangos, the people of this city, through interesting facts and some historical background by our local guide in our small-group tour limited to ten people.
And what better way to end than enjoying some tasty chilango street food; there’s something for everyone’s taste and diets.
