Brazil: Cycling Activity Holiday
The world's largest country in the tropics
In rural areas in Brazil the bicycle is a common means of transport. This does not mean that cyclists are usually respected by cars, trucks, or bus drivers. But you may find good roads with little traffic outside the cities. It is also easy to get a lift by a pickup or to have the bike transported by a bus. Cycling is not very stimulated in big cities. Two exceptions are Rio de Janeiro and Recife where there are cycle tracks along the beaches. There are a lot of bicyclers groups that have meeting sometimes on the week to walk on cities and make travels.
