Did you know that, as in many other cities in the world, in Buenos Aires you can use the Public Bicycle Sharing System? 

There are bike stations all over the city, there's one very near IW Language School, in Plaza Güemes.

Here you will find a map with all the stations. You only need to type Plaza Güemes to see the one nearest to us.

And there's a new App available too.
