What you'll do

It is from the sister city of Olinda, Recife, that the tour begins. We will meet at Boulevard Rio Branco (Recife Antigo), where we will take the bikes to Marim dos Caetés. It is only 07 km away by the bike path between the two cities. We will pass through some neighborhoods, communities and cross the busiest avenue in Recife, Agamenon Magalhães. We will also pass by the old Beltrão Plant (1890), which later became the Tacaruna Factory (1924), deactivated in the early 1980s. In Olinda, we will return the bicycles to, on foot, explore its historic center declared in 1982 by UNESCO, as a Historical and Cultural Heritage of Humanity. For about 2 hours you will discover the winding streets of colorful houses and wonderful views over the treetops, church towers and red roofs of one of the most preserved and beautiful colonial cities in Brazil. And before taking the bikes to return to Recife, you will meet a Baobá, better known as the Tree of Life.

If you are looking for a fun tour that covers a large part of the city in a short time with precious tips, you should book this incredible experience
Other things to note
It's very important to bring light clothing, sunscreen, water, sunglasses and hat / cap. In the summer (Dec/Mar), the sun is very hard, so prepare yourself to the heat. In case of rain, the tour can be rescheduled.

I was born and raised in Recife and I love my city. Olinda is a city I've been going to since my teens. I lived for seven years in the island of Fernando de Noronha, where I worked with tourism, became a scuba diver and where I started to use the bike as a means of transport. Back to Recife, I became a bike activist and as coordinator of an association of cyclists (Ameciclo), I had the opportunity to travel to Europe and some countries in South America, where I cycled in many cities. I like culture, nature and I love to exchange ideas, so it's always a great pleasure to welcome travelers and help them to have a true local experience.

Experiência simplesmente fantástica, um ótimo passeio de bike, tranquilo, de Recife a Olinda. Em Olinda tivemos um tour guiado excelente, onde o Roderick contou sobre a história da cidade nos pontos que passávamos e também fatos curiosos que sem a atenção aos detalhes passariam despercebidos. Um passeio fantástico para conhecer o centro histórico de Olinda, com um guia "Massa".

Amei a experiência! O Roderick foi bem atencioso e explica muito bem sobre a história do local. Todos os cuidados foram tomados como o uso de máscara durante todo o passeio e higienização das bicicletas. Recomendo!

Roderick was a patient and knowledgeable person. He spoke great English and we learned a lot about the area and Brazilian customs, especially those in the Recife area. The Heritage site was really nice - we felt like we went back in time as it was well preserved and colorful.

Rodrick was an excellent host, he guided me on how to ride the bike, had good knowledge of the area and very patient with me when I wanted to take pictures. It’s was refreshing to find a host that had a great wealth of knowledge of olinda and knew the environment and also the best places to take good pictures. Rodrick came out on short notice and I appreciated his kindness and sacrifice because this tour was on his birthday. Rodrick is an excellent man and deserves more than five stars I will recommend anyone in the future to go on this tour with him because you will be glad you did. We ended the night with some local cuisine and some local beers and I enjoyed every bit of my tour.
