The idea of taking an electric bike tour in Rio was born from my passion for cycling and my love for the city where I chose to live.
After several days of pedaling through the forest with a normal bicycle, I began to wonder how it would be possible to make this experience viable for many more people.
This is how I came up with the idea of buying electric bicycles capable of assisting those who need them along the way. (the bicycles are pedal assisted, have no accelerator and are not a motorcycle)
During this experience you will have the opportunity to get to know many wonderful places, not very accessible and less known.
At the end of the day you will have a different image of Rio de Janiero, and you will know much more about how the city is composed and structured.
In addition to this you will be in constant contact with nature, with possible and probable encounters with toucans, monkeys and many other exotic animals.

What's Included

Bottled water

Cereal bar

Stefano was a great guide. He was very personable, reached out prior to the excursion to ensure we were ok. Once on the tour, he took plenty of pictures and even created a video slide show with a copy of our route attached. It was awesome! He is very detailed, made sure we stopped at all the scenic points. The ride through the forest was amazing! We stopped for pictures and had a mini photo shoot. I would definitely recommend this tour to friends. We have made a friend in Stefano!
Maravilha de passeio!!

O Stefano nos proporcionou um dia especial pedalando por lugares “escondidos” do Rio de Janeiro. Fizemos 50 km de bicicleta com segurança e muita informação. É uma excelente oportunidade de se ver um Rio diferente e lindo como sempre.
