Marcos Serrao is a true bike activist, associate member of Transporte Ativo organization, with whom he has published two mobile apps for Android devices. The 2015 crisis was just the push we needed to go for our own business and to work with my passions. Together with Gabriel Navarro and Jacque Lobo, we created some tours gathering what Rio has the best to offer: cycling towards our beautiful sea-side bike-paths, immersing yourself in a hike at Rio's lush forest and getting to know genuine places. You will experience a much more authentic Rio and feel so many nuances that would simply be missed on a conventional sightseeing vehicle tour. We hope that you enjoy Rio as much as we do!
