Making use of the new cycle paths, you’ll bike through the lively backstreets of iconic neighborhood Copacabana heading to Botafogo. There you’ll pass by Rio’s ‘celebrity’ cemetery, São João Batista, resting place of several Brazilian presidents, writers, singers, actors and also renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.

From there you’ll pedal to the Bay of Guanabara, along the beach of Flamengo, local of the first European settlement after the discovery of Rio de Janeiro. After Flamengo the route continues to the historical center of the city, with stops at Cinelândia and Lapa, well known for its nightlife and the `Steps of Selarón’, 250 steps covered in more than 2000 tiles from different countries. On the way back you cycle along the paths winding through Flamengo Park, designed by famous Brazilian landscaper Burle Marx.

The last stretch of the tour will pass along the world famous Copacabana beach and it's historic Copacabana Palace hotel and then you'll head back to the starting point, where your tour ends.

Best way to really see Rio

I highly recommend Rio by Bike. Ulysses is a great guide - he knows everything about Rio! He was also very tolerant of a 63-year-old fat guy (me) who couldn't keep up with the group. One of the highlights of my trip to fantastic Rio.
