Know More about this tour

With sunshine, beautiful bays, and seaside walkways, Rio de janeiro is a city made for exploring by bike. Discover some of its most beautiful sights and get your adrenaline pumping on this Rio bike tour!

First up, we'll head off from Copacabana, cruising along the majestic Ipanema beach. Explore the streets, people-watch in one of the citys most scenic locations, and learn how this neighbourhood has been inspiring artists for decades. Then, leave the beach behind as you cycle through the picturesque Allahs Garden, towards the massive Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, known simply to locals as the Lagoa.

We'll stop by the lagoons entertainment area to enjoy a refreshing coconut water break and soak up the atmosphere of this popular spot. Once you're refreshed, we'll cycle over to the botanical gardens, where you can jump off your bike to enjoy a walking tour. Admire the stunning imperial palms, learn more about the gardens history, and admire the vast orchid collection in the greenhouse.

Then, jump back on your bike and cycle through the bohemian Baixo Gavea, returning to the seaside as we explore Leblon beach. You'll get a photo-worthy moment when we admire the great beach view from Leblons lookout point.

We'll cruise along the coast a bit more, passing by Ipanema beach before reaching Arpoador beach, where youll understand why the sunset is so special here. Finally, we'll ride back through Girl from Ipanema Park to reach Copacabana once again, where your Rio bike tour comes to an end.

    This tour was amazing!

    Upon arrival and calling to confirm we were told then and only then, not before at any time by email, that the tour provider was unable to fulfill the tour. It would have been extremely helpful to us to have known this in advance. We did rearrange our schedule and did a 9 am bike ride on a different beach and were told by the guide that he would have been the same provider for the 3 pm tour but he had never been contacted to provide that service. Somewhere there is a disconnect with the middleman here

    Great way to see the city and get some exercise. The tour is run by 2 local chaps who were relaxed and friendly and made us feel very welcome, and we're more than happy to take photos of the 2 of us...even when cycling! Definitely do this tour!!
