Cycle the coast to Rio



4 May - 13 May 2018

14 Sept - 23 Sept 2018

3 May - 12 May 2019

13 Sept - 22 Sept 2019

Where: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Duration: 10 days

About: Undulating roads take us past hidden bays and fishing villages, with beautiful sandy beaches and blue sea to one side, and green mountain slopes thick with rainforest to the other. It is one of the most scenic cycling destinations you could hope for without climbing mountains!

Although the hills you encounter are fairly gentle, you will have some long hot days in the saddle, and will be glad to reach Paraty, a beautiful small town tucked away at the end of the historic Gold Trail. After time to enjoy this little gem, you will head to Rio, the most famous city in South America, where you have time to celebrate and explore.

Registration fee: £499

Minimum sponsorship amount: £4,700 (or flexi-funding option available)
