Rio City Bike Tour
Pedal a bicycle around the bustling Brazilian capital on this 5-hour bike tour of Rio de Janeiro. Explore landmarks and highlights in an interactive, physical way with your informative cycling guide. Visit areas of the city such as Botafogo, Cinelândia, Lapa and Tiradentes square, listening to informative commentary as you travel. All cycling equipment is included.
What to Expect
Meet your cycling guide near Copacabana. Listen to a safety briefing and orientation, then get fitted for your bike and helmet. 

Hop on your bike and start pedaling, headed for your first destination: the Botafogo neighborhood, stopping at Urca and Praia Vermelha on the way. Pause at Botafogo's beach for great views of Sugar Loaf Mountain and a coconut water with a well-known neighborhood character. After a short rest and with your electrolytes restored, continue to Flamengo Park, South America's largest leisure park. Join the other cyclists in riding around the park, viewing locals at leisure.

Head for downtown Rio to get a Brazilian history lesson while riding through down streets, past buildings and through squares that played host to important events. See the Imperial House, Tiradentes Square and Candelária Church. 

Continue to the bohemian neighborhood of Lapa, home to an 18th-century aqueduct and the famous Escadaria Selarón. Pedal onward to Cinelândia the final point of your tour.

Say goodbye to your guide and leave with recommendations for restaurants, museums, nightlife, football matches and more.
