About your host

We're two cariocas that decided to put our passions together in this experience: Rio de Janeiro, bikes and travel. We use bikes as a way of life, political act and main way of transportation, beliving that, in two wheels, we can go further. Even more in a city like Rio, full of social inequalities and with crazy traffic jam, but also with stuning views that can be admired cycling. Together, we…

What we’ll do

This ride is a authentic experience with locals, introducing our loved city. We want you to feel Rio in two wheels, not doing it like a regular tourist ride, but as friends.

We begin on Ipanema beach, with the view of Arpoador rocks and Two Brothers Hill. After…

It's very important to put sunblock and drink a lot of water during the ride. The sun in Rio is really strong, be prepared for the heat. If it's raining the ride can be moved for another day and we're going to check the weather 24h in advance. EVERYBODY is welcome in our experience

Where you'll be

We begin the ride looking at the stunning view of the Two Brothers Hill (Morro Dois Irmãos), on Arpoador. Then we go to the famous Copacabana Beach, where I tell a little bit of the story of the neighbourhood. The next stop, Botafogo Beach, has the most wonderful view of Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer. As we arrive on Flamengo Park, you're going to feel inside a tropical urban jungle, with a lot of ancient trees and beautiful views. We make a stop to taste the best açaí in town. If you want other thing, there're other specialities from Amazon. The last stop is Downtown, the historical and business center of Rio. There, we go 'till Mauá Square, one of the most visited sites of the city, with the beautiful Museum of Tomorow, Museum of Rio, Olympic Boulevard and Little Africa.
