Hi!!! I live in Petrópolis that's a Town about 90km from Rio. Here you can find hundreds of trails in our mountains to ride your bike if you want!

You can also enjoy our historical town and know about our German colonization!!!

I live alone and would like so much to host you and your boyf, however i live in a very small apartment and cannot offer adequate comfort.

It will be pleasure be your guide here in my lands if you want to visit the mountain region....

Close to my Building there are a Hostel. You can stay there for a cheap price if you want and have my support to stay some days!!!!

I bet you will love!!!

Hi Ximena Castillo ...

Have you come to Rio?
Cycling in Rio is always an adventure.
The city has a network of well-structured coclovias.
Most Orla is in the South Zone and part of the Barra da Tijuca.
If you are not afraid can walk through traffic with the best care possible.

Here in Rio has a bicycle rental system maintained by a private bank.

I will research more and send you ...

Good weekend
