Copacabana Bike Ride & Sugarloaf

Copacabana, Brazil

Experience hosted by Marcos / Jaque

4 hours
Includes drinks, transportation
Up to 5 people
Hosted in English, Portuguese

What you'll do

We’ll cycle along the promenade of the famous Copacabana beach to understand the character of the neighborhood and then head towards Morro da Urca. We’ll hike up the hill to get a close look at the local vegetation and wildlife, and if desired we'll take the cable car to Sugar Loaf from there. Since we'll have reached the first hill by foot, it’s cheaper when take the ride from there to the second hill. We’ll end the day with some drinks at Mureta da Urca, a little wall by Guanabara Bay that became a popular place where young locals hang to view the city’s amazing landscape.
Other things to note
Be sure to bring sunscreen, water and comfortable walking shoes.

I am a bike activist, an associate member of Transporte Ativo, with whom I published 2 mobile apps for Android devices.

About 2 years ago, together with a few friends, we decided it was time to make some carbon-free experiencing tours gathering what Rio had the best to offer: to cycle at our beautiful beaches bike-paths, to immerse in a hike at Rio's lush forest and to socialize by a sea-side bar

I had a great experience with Jacque. Since I was the only one doing the tour, she really tailored it to my interests and we made extra unplanned stops so she could show me where the locals go, not just the tourists, and tell me about the history of the people of Rio. We got some delicious food and I got to see so much of the city that I would not have been able to see on my own - thanks so much!

Jacque was extremely pleasant and interesting to talk with. It felt like hanging out with a friend while being active in the city. She even invited me to join her on a trip to shop at a downtown market after the tour. Jacque genuinely cared about my well-being but wasn't at all patronizing, explaining things as needed. I would definitely recommend Jacque's custom tour!

Excelente experiência! Oportunidade de conhecer a cidade de uma forma descontraída e divertida. A Jaque foi muito atenciosa durante todo o percurso.
