The Urban Tour is a cycling tour in Rio, focusing on the southern part of the city. You'll visit several of Rio's famous sites, but also some of its traditional neighborhoods. We’ll start at Copacabana beach, to experience where big part of the social life of the locals is spent. From there we will bike on to Sugarloaf Mountain, to view its imposing vastness up close (we will not visit the Sugar Loaf itself). The tour will also include a stop at nearby Praia Vermelha (Red Beach),a tiny oasis of quietness.
Leaving Praia Vermelha behind us, we will pedal to the lively neighborhood of Botafogo, to get a glimpse of the back lanes of Rio. This stretch of the bike tour will give you a closer look at how real Cariocas (people from Rio) live when they're not on the beach. The last part of the trip will lead to Lagoa, the big city lake, which is surrounded by green hillsides and fancy neighborhoods.
