Rio is a great city but the southern tourist zone includes many bicycle and pedestrian paths. For example, around the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, a 7.5 km trail was built for cyclists and joggers. By the sea, the coastal road along the bays of Ipanema and Copacabana is closed to traffic every Sunday. The road then becomes open to walk, and there are people!
