Medellin Free City Guide


To encourage fitness and health, the local council closes certain major roads to traffic so that residents have a space for jogging, running, skating, cycling, and aerobics. It’s not only a space for exercise, but a space for the city to meetup with friends, family members, strangers of all ages. Dogs are welcome as well.

The most accessible “ciclovia” is every Sunday & public holidays along Avenida Poblado between the hours of 7am and 1pm. The road is closed all the way from the south in Envigado until El Centro in the north. There is no official place to start or end, just head down to Avenida Poblado and choose a direction you’d like to go.

There are also night time ciclovias on Tuesdays and Thursdays on Avenida Regional. This ciclovia is between Jumbo Supermarket (Avenida Las Vegas) and puente de Barranquilla between 8pm and 10pm.

    Cycling Fun
    There’s also an unofficial Ciclovia which is alot of fun as you cycle around Medellin with a group of strangers taking a different route each week.
