Enjoy a great bike tour along the beach and the bays, all the way downtown and back, and as you ride, you’ll understand how the city expanded from its first settlements to the Rio of today. The tour will start with a trip around Copacabana, home to one of the most famous beaches in the world, and on to the neighbourhood of Botafogo. This district is best known as the spot where you can capture that perfectly framed photo of Sugarloaf Mountain, one of the most iconic images of Brazil. Moving on, you’ll ride up along the coast of Flamengo Beach and park. A jewel created by Burle Marx, a master of landscape design, this area is pure joy and is always filled with locals just hanging out. This route will then lead you straight downtown and right past the Museum of Modern Art, and across Cinelandia Square.
Then, you’ll ride along Avenida Rio Branco, once the busiest street in Rio, and which was recently redesigned for the 2016 Summer Olympics. You’ll head from the downtown area through Praça XV Square, to reach a new path surrounding the neighborhood, eventually reaching the Museum of Tomorrow at Praça Mauá Square. From there, you’ll ride along Olympic Boulevard, where you’ll see the stunning work by artist Eduardo Kobra. His work here is an extremely colorful graffiti mural. Finally, you’ll cycle back to Copacabana.
