You will start this tour at the meeting point in Copacabana, and then from there on, using bike trails, you will bike through the lively backstreets of the iconic Copacabana neighborhood, before heading towards Botafogo – a slightly more “hipster” neighborhood – where you will make a stop at Rio’s “celebrity” cemetery São João Batista, the resting place of several Brazilian presidents, writers, singers, actors and also renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.
After that, you will head towards the Bay of Guanabara, along the Flamengo beach – this is where the first Europeans settled down after they discovered Rio de Janeiro. The route then continues towards the historical center of Rio, with stops at Cinelândia and Lapa – also known as the heart of samba. Get a chance to also visit the “Steps of Selarón” – a total of 250 steps covered in more than 2000 tiles from different countries.
On the way back, you will cycle along the paths winding through Flamengo Park – designed by famous Brazilian landscaper Burle Marx – and the last stretch of the tour will see you passing along the world-famous Copacabana beach and its historic Copacabana Palace Hotel – before you arrive back to the starting point, where your tour also ends.
