Course[edit]

The women's course was 141 km (87.6 mi) long. Starting at Fort Copacabana,[2] the peloton headed west to pass through Ipanema, Barra, and Reserva Maripendi Beaches via the coastal road leading to the 24.8 km (15.4 mi) Pontal / Grumari circuit loop.[3] After two laps of the Grumari sector 49.6 km (30.8 mi), the course returned east via the same coastal road to enter the Vista Chinesa Circuit loop at Gávea for one lap of the 25.7 km (16.0 mi) circuit before finishing back at Fort Copacabana.[4] As with all road races during the Olympic Games, law enforcement escorted the athletes to keep them and bystanders safe during the competition. The Brazilian Federal Highway Police (PRF) were assigned the duty to escort the athletes during the 2016 Olympics.
