    What to Expect
    Your 3-hour bike tour starts at Ipanema beach were bikes are distributed. A few blocks away you'll visit the Garota de Ipanema bar, where the famous song was written, setting the mood and tempo for a wonderful bike ride. After riding along Ipanema beach, you'll visit the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon and its fantastic views. From the lagoon, you'll be able to see the Corcovado hill and Rio's main landmark: the Christ the Redeemer statue.
    Carrying on with the visit, you'll arrive at Botafogo beach from where you'll see the Sugar Loaf hill in all its splendor, a true Kodak moment (or Instagram if you prefer). A few minutes later, you'll arrive at the hidden Vermelha beach were you'll stop for refreshments (not included in price). After drinking a cold coconut, you'll be ready to continue towards Copacabana beach arriving finally at Pedra do Arpoador and its stunning view. There are eight stops along the way for sight explanation and picture opportunities. Water and food can be purchased in two of the stops.
