Santiago 30m Bike Route

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Mon, 27 Oct 2014 22:58:02 -0300

[Distance may be a little less if you don't get lost!]

A good route for Sundays.  Cuts right across Santiago from E to W then returns
on the South side.  Almost all on ciclovias and pretty flat.

Given the map
I won't give a huge amount of details, but the basic idea is:

* From Europa / Lyon (where I live), go N to the Costanera, and then W into
  town.  On a Sunday the Costanera itself is closed to traffic, otherwise use
  the ciclovia along the riverside.

* Continue past Bellas Artes until the park finishes.  Then turn left (head S)
  into Santiago on Diagonal Cervantes, turning right onto Rosas.

* Head W on Rosas, crossing Ruta 5, until Gral Bulnes.  Then S down Bulnes to
  Alameda (all this, including Rosas, is ciclovia).

* Ride the cicolvia down the centre of Alameda W until it stops (where Ruta 68
  branches right the cyclovia moves to the left side of the road for a time,
  but keeps going) (that is where I got lost).

* Eventually, you're on Los Pajaritos, approaching Vespucio.  The ciclovia
  stops for a time - use the footpath / dirt on the right, but basically keep
  on the same route until it starts again, still on Pajaritos, but now heading

* That ciclovia stops at the town square.  Cross the square and head E on 5 de
  Abril (ciclovia soon starts again).  Follow the same ciclovia, curving NE,
  crossing Vespucio on a footbridge (cool spiral descent!) along Camino A
  Melipilla and Pedro Aguirre Cerda.

* The ciclovia disappears briefly in a few places, but gets you all the way to
  Ramon Subercaseaux / Rodizzoni.  Go E there (on the road) until Parque

* Enter the park at the SE corner and go N, exiting at the metro station, on
  Matta.  You want to go E on Matta, but since there's no ciclovia at first
  it's easier to drop S one block and cycle along Santiaguillo until San

* At San Diego return to Matta and take the central ciclovia E until the
  junction with with Grecia There you jink N and continue in the same
  direction as Matta (ie don't turn on Grecia) on Matte Oeste, then Duble

* The ciclovia on Duble Almeyda is the shittiest I know.  It stops and starts
  so often it's almost useless, but the road is busy.  Continue E until the
  road passes through a small wooded area then turn left (N) onto Juan Moya
  Morales, which soon becomes Montenegro.

* Montenegro eventually reaches Tobalaba, and then it's N to Pucon and back
