What you'll do

The bike tour begins in the south side. Let's get to know the famous urban beaches of Boa Viagem and Pina, Brasília Teimosa, a fisherman village that still resists the strong pressure of the real estate market. We will continue through the reefs, which give our city its name and holds one of the most beautiful views of Recife. We will continue to the Francisco Brennand's Sculpture Park and, in a small boat, the "baiteira", we will cross the river and reach the Island of Recife, the central part (Recife Antigo) and where the city began. We will also explore the historical districts, squares, buildings, biking across the bridges of the "Brazilian Venice", along the oldest street in the city, biking along the Capibaribe River banks, and ending the tour in the most iconic street market of the city, the São José Market, where you can taste a delicious sugar cane juice! If you are looking for a fun tour, an overview of the city, it's history, culture, invaluable tips and suggestions for your days around here, look no further than this experience. Important: we do not return to the meeting point! Ask me about the Olinda bike tour ;)

Roderick

I was born and raised in Recife and I love my city. I lived for seven years in the island of Fernando de Noronha, where I worked with tourism, became a scuba diver and where I started to use the bike as a means of transport. Back to Recife, I became a bike activist and as coordinator of an association of cyclists (Ameciclo), I had the opportunity to travel to Europe and some countries in South America, where I cycled in many cities. I like culture, nature and I love to exchange ideas, so it's always a great pleasure to welcome travelers and help them to have a true local experience.

Where you'll be

We will cycle through the urban beaches of Recife, arriving at "Brasília Teimosa", a fisherman village that has one of the best spots to enjoy a sea bath and delicious seafood. To get to the center of the city, we will make a boat crossing, locally called "baiteira". (yes, there is room for bikes!) And along the way, I will show some hidden urban interventions.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 14 and up can attend. You must be able to cycle for 03h. It's a bike ride pace, the idea is to explore the city, not to win a race ;)

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

Light clothing, sunscreen, water, sunglasses and hat / cap.

More tips

It's very important to bring light clothing, sunscreen, water, sunglasses and hat / cap. In the summer (Dec/Mar), the sun is very hard, so prepare yourself to the heat. In case of rain, the bike tour can be rescheduled. We do not return to the meeting point!
