“On the Sunday bicycle route (Biciruta) you will come to Monumento a la Patria, created by famous Columbian sculptor Rómulo Rozo. It includes 300 hand-carved figures that tell the story of Mexico and is a great photo-op. If one were to bike the entire round-trip bicycle route quickly with no stops or sight seeing, the route could be accomplished in 30 to 40 minutes. We take a leisurely couple of hours stopping for coffee or ice cream and perusing the wares of vendors in the various parks. ”
