Why do we ride the cities of Paraty, Ibitipoca and Buzios in Brazil?


where

PARATY(RJ): This old port, where most of our colonial wealth was exported to the Old World (Europe), is the place where the turquoise blue of the Atlantic Ocean touches the green bands of pristine rainforest. All this charm, along with the old gold path, trails, and dirt roads in the surrounding mountains combined with it’s prime location between two of the major Brazilian cities (Rio and Sao Paulo) already attracts many cultural events to Paraty and gives this historic city the ideal conditions for the development of an international event MTB.

BUZIOS (RJ): Located in the state of Rio de Janeiro, is a small peninsula much frequented by tourists worldwide. With over 20 beaches with crystal clear waters, Buzios is perfect for scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, sailing and other water sports. The buzz is because of the sophisticated bars and international cuisine restaurants mostly concentrated in the trendy and famous Rua das Pedras.

IBITIPOCA (MG) – “ The mountain that explodes!” A little information about the Tupi-Guarani (Brazilian indigenous language) origin of the word 'Ibitipoca'. It means “mountain that explodes”, from the combination of the two words "ybytyra"(stone) and "pok" (explodes).

Ibitipoca is the largest outcropping of quartzite in the world, which explains the high incidence of lightning during periods of heavy rains that explodes on contact with the quartzite on the ground.

The Ibitipoca State Park was chosen by Choices Traveller's 2013 as the 3rd best Latin America Park and the 2nd best in Brazil. It has a biological reserve that "embraces" the park forming a protective belt and cushions it from the impact of civilization, allowing many species to interact, reproduce and search for food and shelter.

We invite bikers to the bucolic Conceição de Ibitipoca Village to experience this preserved "belt" of lush native forest.

BUZIOS (RJ): Located in the state of Rio de Janeiro, is a small peninsula much frequented by tourists worldwide. With over 20 beaches with crystal clear waters, Buzios is perfect for scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, sailing and other water sports. The buzz is because of the sophisticated bars and international cuisine restaurants mostly concentrated in the trendy and famous Rua das Pedras.
