Biking to the Sugar Loaf


After spending a few hours in the sun, we decided that it might be nice to bike a little bit, so we found a bike rental place and headed for the bike pathways that lead us down Copacabana, through a tunnel, and then out around some curves to see Christ looking down on the city. This is the first time I’ve really had a good look at the statue, as you can see it really well from this part of the city–his arms open wide. Tomorrow we will see the city from Corcavado’s point of view! We biked for just a couple of hours, and then headed to dinner at a restaurant in Ipanema, and enjoyed the nice summer evening.
