Bicycle

You don’t see many long-distance cyclists in Brazil. Among the hazards are crazy drivers, roads without shoulder room, long distances and the threat of theft.

If you’re determined to tackle Brazil by bike, go over your bike with a fine-tooth comb before leaving home and fill your repair kit with every imaginable spare part. There are several decent bike shops in Rio for buying equipment and gear as well as renting bikes (which average R$60 per day).
