Skip the bike rental and join your guide and group for a leisurely ride around Rio de Janeiro on this half-day sightseeing tour. Choose your bike and set off along a paved path, heading toward Two Brothers Hill. Pass Allah's Garden and continue pedaling along the canal that separates Leblon and Ipanema beaches. Follow your guide to Rodrigo de Freitas Lake, and take the 4.4-mile (7.2 kilometers) circular path around its perimeter, passing by sports complexes and parks along the way. Stop along the way to hear a brief history of Rio's reigning sport. Then, view the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) statue atop Corcovado Mountain looking over the city. Stop to snap some photos before hopping back on your bike and pedal back to your starting point.
Upon arrival and calling to confirm we were told then and only then, not before at any time by email, that the tour provider was unable to fulfill the tour. It would have been extremely helpful to us to have known this in advance. We did rearrange our schedule and did a 9 am bike ride on a different beach and were told by the guide that he would have been the same provider for the 3 pm tour but he had never been contacted to provide that service. Somewhere there is a disconnect with the middleman here
Great way to see the city and get some exercise. The tour is run by 2 local chaps who were relaxed and friendly and made us feel very welcome, and we're more than happy to take photos of the 2 of us...even when cycling! Definitely do this tour!!
