Who is Bikes and Munchies?


Our background story is unique. Love was, and still is, the energy that motivated us to believe that a bicycle’s Project can create a change in the way we travel, and  in our lives.

We, the founders, Paola (Mexican) and Sven (German) met back in 2017 thanks to a famous dating App while he was traveling in Mexico. After a few months of love distance, we decided to live together in Mexico City. Once here, we realized that bicycles were a shared passion as well as great food. The combination of skills and ideas, German planning and Mexican local knowledge,  lead us to create a unique experience based on bicycles and street food.

 

Today the team has grown, the small project has developed into a top ranking experience,  the bicycle movement is huge worldwide, Mexican food is as delicious as always and we are married.


 

 

Vibrant neighborhoods



We will discover the Mexican history by driving through its 4 oldest neighborhoods, enjoying the different architectures, bohemian vibes, and lovely parks.

 

Roma and Condesa, 

The epicenter of hipster subculture in the city, the neighborhood streets are lined with restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, cultural centers, churches and galleries. 

 

Juárez

Also knew it as the little Europe, this neighborhood is surrounded by art nouveau architecture. It used to be an aristocratic residence until the revolution. Nowadays it's full of secrets, restaurants and bars that only the locals know.


 

 

Authentic Mexican street food



Mexican food is known all around the world and is one of the biggest success stories of our country. 

 

But what most people don't know is that it's more than Tacos, Burritos and Enchiladas. Our goal is to give you a real taste of Mexican streetfood, hidden gems and street vendors you can't find yourself

 

The food you will try is very carefully selected by us and there is always a vegetarian option at hand. You will dive with us into moving markets (tianguis) and turbulent mercados, as well as a very modern interpretation of these.


 

 

Comfy bikes



From our own experience of traveling around the world, we truly love to discover new cities by bike.

 

To deliver you the most enjoyable bike ride through the bumpy streets of CDMX, we buckled up with our friends from Tropical Bikes, a bicycle manufacturer in Mexico City. They hand made these black cruising bikes from scratch.

 

- 10 cruising bikes with single speed and hand brakes

 

We will also provide helmets and locks
