Bike Rental — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Biking, like walking, forces you to slow down, giving you time to observe a place, taking in its rhythms, engaging with its people, bringing you deeply in contact with it, making biking a great way to experience a place. A couple of outfits that run bike tours also rent by the day. For guided bike tours of the city, the valleys, the sierras, and the Pacific coast, read the article "Bike Tours."
