History and symbols of Brazil

The fifth largest country in the world, Brazil is also the only country to be crossed by both the equator and the Tropic of Capricorn. Its territory occupies a large part of the South American east coast, as well as a large portion of its interior territory. As a result, Brazil shares a border with all South American countries, except Ecuador and Chile.
Colonized by Portugal in the early 16th century, and declared independent in 1822, Brazil has retained Portuguese as its main language, the only one in South America, and by far the largest Portuguese-speaking population in the world. Brazilian culture presents an extremely diverse and varied nature which can be described as that of a multicultural society which has given rise to many world famous festivals (such as the Brazilian carnivals).

The route consists of 70% paved roads, 30% tracks and some sections on cobblestones. The course also includes technical ascents/descents.
For this reason, we recommend:

  • CX / Gravel Bike
  • Gravel tires minimum 40mm / 45mm recommended
  • Disc brakes
  • Transmission: Single chainring minimum 38 teeth (front) – cassette 11-46 (rear) or recommended 38 teeth (front) – cassette 10-52 (rear)
