What you'll do

The bike tour begins in the south side. Let's get to know the famous urban beaches of Boa Viagem and Pina, Brasília Teimosa, a fisherman village that still resists the strong pressure of the real estate market. We will continue through the reefs, which give our city its name and holds one of the most beautiful views of Recife. We will continue to the Francisco Brennand's Sculpture Park and, in a small boat, the "baiteira", we will cross the river and reach the Island of Recife, the central part (Recife Antigo) and where the city began. We will also explore the historical districts, squares, buildings, biking across the bridges of the "Brazilian Venice", along the oldest street in the city, biking along the Capibaribe River banks, and ending the tour in the most iconic street market of the city, the São José Market, where you can taste a delicious sugar cane juice!

If you are looking for a fun tour, an overview of the city, it's history, culture, invaluable tips and suggestions for your days around here, look no further than this experience.
Important: we do not return to the meeting point!
Ask me about the Olinda bike tour ;)
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 bike tour can be rescheduled. We do not return to the meeting point!

I was born and raised in Recife and I love my city. 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.

Where you'll be

We will cycle through the urban beaches of Recife, arriving at "Brasília Teimosa", a fisherman village that has one of the best spots to enjoy a sea bath and delicious seafood. To get to the center of the city, we will make a boat crossing, locally called "baiteira". (yes, there is room for bikes!) And along the way, I will show some hidden urban interventions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 54 reviews.

Melhor escolha de passeio que eu poderia ter feito! Se você gosta de pedalar, ouvir histórias e pretende conhecer mais sobre Recife, é algo que você não pode deixar de fazer. Roderick conhece muita coisa da região, foi super gente boa e cauteloso com as medidas de segurança existentes por conta da covid 19. Nota 10!

This was a wonderful tour. Roderick is skilled at clearly leading us through the city, made us feel very safe while biking, and explained some history of the city. He also answered our questions and was easy to chat with. You feel like you are just out with a friend! We tried a local drink, rode on a small boat across the river, and saw the reef. If you are worried about your biking skills, don’t fret - We rode about 11k and it was 95% flat. Easy ride . Bring water and sunscreen!

Foi uma experiência fantástica. Eu fui em pleno Natal ( 25/12/20)estilo mochileira solitária . E ele se dispôs a fazer o passeio , e por ser feriado passamos por mais lugares com a bike , uma vez que o comércio nao estava aberto e não havia circulação das pessoas do cotidiano. Ainda foi meu fotógrafo no percurso .☺ Foi uma imersão na história de Recife . AMEEEIIIIIIII . Gratidão 🤗
