This is an absolutly 'must do' !!!
What a perfect day !!! Started at 0900 am, right after breakfast. Sun is not to hot in the morning so it was a perfect timing to start this amazing trip. Great bikes and good paths to ride the bike easily !! Friendly and helpful guides and they speak English very well.
Interesting information about almost all the things you have to know about Rio. They also gave us valuable tips about where to go, local beaches, dining etc etc.
I visited Rio for many times, but I really loved this tour. So much more to learn about this beautiful city. It was an eye opener. Thank you guys !!!!

Tackling busy, rather chaotic Rio de Janeiro on a bicycle might not be the first thing you think about visiting this city, but I would recommend it to everybody. We did a cycle tour on a warm morning with Rio by Bike and it was worth the sweat. The tour was very well organized and the guide made us feel comfortable during the ride. Traffic can be pretty chaotic in Rio, but luckily most of tour is done on cycle lanes. Our guide Philip gave us some real insight in the local culture and even stopped at a typical neighborhood bar, a so called ‘dirty foot’ bar and explained its popularity in Rio. This tour is a must do, excellent!

This is a great way to explore and learn about Rio-and get some exercise! Our guide was very enthusiastic and motivated in providing information and guiding us through the various bike paths/routes in Rio/along the beaches. Definitely worth it.

We spent a week in Rio de Janeiro and one the highlights was definitely our bicycle tour with Rio by Bike. It was our third time in Rio, but seeing it while cycling is a totally different thing. You see the city from a completely different angle and realize you missed a bunch of beautiful locations earlier on, while passing through town in a car or bus. We visited Sugar Loaf Mountain before, but we never visited the nearby rustic beach, Praia Vermelha and now we did, by bike. Our guide, who turned out to be a former journalist, is a Rio resident for many years and you can tell he really loves the city. Having said that, he didn’t shy away from pointing out social problems Rio still has to deal with. Highly recommended.
