See beautiful Rio by bike!
Nov 2020
Booked a tour last minute, due to my plans not being set in stone. Rio by bike was able to accommodate me. Jan was on time and met me to give me all the info regarding the tour, had a map and was able to make an adjustment since I had already seen one of the attractions on the tour and change it out for something else. I was the only one of the tour due to the pandemic and tourism being down. I had an excellent time seeing all parts of the city while learning about history, culture and life in Brazil. I highly recommend this bike tour company. Also, the roads were pretty flat so even if you are not an experienced biker you can do it! Loved seeing the city this way, traffic was not bad either so no concerns, there are also a lot of bike lanes which will help you feel safe. Book it!

Cycling Rio
I had an excellent time with Rio by bike. I was travelling solo in January 2020 and bumped into Rio by bike on trip advisor. Calling and booking was super easy. On the day of my ride, I was the only one on the tour and I appreciate the fact that they didn’t cancel it because of too few people- they ended up taking me on a solo tour which was brilliant.
The tour guide cycled at my pace so I didn’t feel rushed, had a good knowledge of the city and we stopped for a refreshing coconut break. We took loads of photos and I appreciated Rio’s beauty the more.

Most of the cycling is on bike lanes and by water; what’s not to love? It was awesome and I would recommend! Also the
açaí berry sold at the store next door to the Rio by bike shop is amazing!

What an awesome way to spend your first day in Rio! On a bike. We booked the Panoramic bike tour with this company and had such great fun. Our group was diverse and luckily not more than six people, from Europe and a couple from Canada. The guide was a local with good English. His information during the tour contained more than just some facts about the sights and the different neighborhoods, we also got a lot of insight in the local culture and customs. I really liked that aspect.The bicycles were good, with hand breaks and no gears - the route was basically flat. Helmets were also provided for. If you go, bring sun block and drink a lot of water. It can get hot in Rio.

Met all expectations
Feb 2020
We booked this back in October as something different to do whilst in Rio for Carnival. Turned out to be a great choice as Rio is extremely busy during this time so the usual tourist traps had massive queues.

The bikes were comfortable and easy to ride despite us both being over 55 and many years since we had been on bikes. The route worked well and we got to see a closer view of the real Rio compared to most others who were on the same cruise as us.

The only reason I've not given five stars is I think it would have been better for all if the guide had spent just a little more time getting to know us and our experience (or lack of) and had provided a summary of what the route would cover. Ideally, just showing us on a map where we were going and what we would see so we had a clear idea of what to expect and how well we were doing for time.

We had a couple of incidents where clients (one being my wife) came off their bikes. Fortunately nothing worse than bruises and always a risk when trying to take in all the sights and ride safely along crowded and unfamiliar cycle paths and routes. We were never cycling amongst traffic.

When we started it was very hot and sunny. Fortunately the guide offered us some of his sunblock which we were silly to forget. Luckily it clouded over so it was very pleasant and even the rain for the last 30 minutes didn't spoil the fun.

Would be great with a different guide!
The tour itself was great as we got a chance to see Rio's cemetery (it was quite similar to the Recolet in Buenos Aires), saw the famous Lapa stairs, got to see the center of Brazil and other places we wouldn't have seen on our own.

It would have gotten full marks from me if the guide was more attentive to where everyone was on the tour (left people behind 3 times), knew how to speak on delicate matters such as; the racism in Brazil and cultural division, the church's opinion on where the country is and sexist comments once we arrived back at the office.

Someone from our group also got harassed by a homeless local in the center and the guide did NOTHING. I would have not expected him to go full superman mode but a guided responsibility is to look after the group. Specially considering that Brazil can be quite dangerous.

I have been on other bike tours and this was definitely one I would remember for the wrong reasons.

Biking Rio
We joined this tour during our 5 day trip to Rio. We ended up in a group of 5 plus our Dutch guide Zand (?) and his maintenance back up guy. The bike collection shop is easy to find and helmets available if you wish (we did as Rio traffic can be a bit bonkers). The tour travels to various points of interest including the city cemetery, selaron steps (you stop here for a drink break too) beaches and CBD. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of info on Rio. The cycling was generally easy although some is on the busy roads, Zand kept us safe. A good way to explore the city.

4hr Bike tour if Rio.
Jan 2020 • Solo
My hotel wasn’t on the list so had to get a taxi to the shop. Not expensive approx 40Brazillian$. Met by a really enthusiastic team and given our bikes. Nothing fancy. A traditional sit up bike. All adjustable for comfort. Zan our guide for the day was superb. Easy, knowledgeable and paced it right for the group. Over the 4 hours you make several stops, for sights, drinks, snacks and shade. The ride was easy and predominantly flat!. A couple of short inclines which most managed but those who didn’t it was a very short walk up. Most of the day was on bike paths. Had the option to wear a helmet. It wasn’t cheap, and yes you could do the whole thing on a street bike but Zans knowledge, stories and insite made the morning really fun and enjoyable. Would recommend and use again. I got a metro back for 5Brazillian$ easy!

Well... where to start? This is more than a bike ride. This is more than a city tour. This is your real life, pop up guide book. Do it at the start of your trip as not only do you pick up tips for the rest of your stay but it gives you confidence with the city.
Our guide Juliana was particularly good. I came away feeling like I’d made a friend. She wears her heart on her sleeve and having therefore seen it- I can confirm she loves Rio. And so will you when you finish this trip. Book it now!
