Biking in Rio de Janeiro

Despite the chaotic traffic, Rio de Janeiro is reasonably well equipped to meet cyclists' needs, and biking in Rio is a popular way to get fit and get around the city.

Unless you fancy taking your life into your own hands, cyclists in Rio should not take to the city streets on their bikes, but there are plenty of places to cycle and sightsee without putting your life in danger.

On Sundays, the entire seafront, from Leblon to Leme, is closed to traffic, making this a wonderful way to soak up the sun, the sea air and the sights without being troubled by the locals' somewhat terrifying driving.

The seven-kilometer track around beautiful Lagoa is another perfect spot for cyclists, while bicycles are the most popular way to get around Ilha da Paqueta, across the bay. Meanwhile, the national park has some more challenging terrain for cyclists in Rio who are more about adrenaline than gentle bike rides.
