The Ciclopaseo: See Quito Up Close by Bike


Quito Ciclopaseo Simon in Parque Ejido

Simon in Parque Ejido

If you are visiting Quito and are here on a Sunday a great way to see the city from top to bottom is by bike on the Ciclopaseo. The Ciclopaseo translates to “bike path” and runs from the old airport in the northern part of the city and weaves through the main avenues and old streets for about 18 miles bringing you deep into the south side of Quito.

The Ciclopaseo closes the roads to motor traffic and starts Sunday morning at 8:00 A.M. and continues into the mid-afternoon until 2:00 P.M—be sure to finish prompty so you are not on the streets when they re-open them to traffic.

While the bike route has some parts which are flat, most of the route is going to range from rolling hills to a few steep climbs. Along the route there are official water stops with free water and there are plenty of little bike shops to help with any last minute repairs or flat tires. Additionally, there are a varity of street vendors selling all types of food from fruit salads to a roasted pork plate—one of my favorites. Use your judgement when buying food from street vendors though; if you stomach is sensative it might be best to pass.

If you don’t have a bike handy, no worries. Throughout the bike route, you can find official Ciclopaseo bike rental tents where you can rent a bike for the day or a few hours. The price is just $8 to rent one from 8 A.M. until 2:00 P.M. or $2.50 per hour. If you are visiting, they request you leave your passport at the rental station and if you are living in Ecuador they request that you leave your cedula and voter card.

Rental stations are found throughout the bike route in the road itself with many of them located on Avineda Río Amazonas (Amazon River Avenue). An easy one to find is on Avineda Río Amazonas near the intersection of Avenida De la Republica (Avenue of the Republic). You can’t miss this one, there is a huge blow up arch right at the rental station.

Now that you know the details on how to get your bike and what to expect on the ride, keep an eye out for a soon-to-be-posted article on some of the amazing sites you will see along the way.

The Ciclopaseo is not limited to just Quito. Currently, the cities of Ambato, Ibarra, Santo Domingo and Zamora also offer this outdoor treat on Sundays. Additional information is available on Facebook “Ciclopaseos Del Ecuador”.
