Travel in Brasil “Estrada Real” – cycling with bags

New trip!
You will discover the treasures of Minas Gerais and, after going across the mountains, you will have the chance to take a dip and see countless colorful fish!

La Estrada Real was opened by the Portuguese crown on the 17th century. It was based on old indigenous trails. It connected Ouro Preto , deep in Minas Gerais, with the port of Paraty on the coast of Rio de Janeiro.
It is currently the oldest and most prestigious road in Brazil, their version of the “Camino de Santiago”. It is, luckily, a very solitary road and still almost virgin, with the exception of a few courageous pilgrims.
The Instituto Estrada Real has been promoting this cultural and natural gem since 2001.
In order to ride the 750 km of the ancient “old road” (camino velho) of the Estrada Real, we will have to ride on more than 80 % of dirt road, with several stretches of trails and old roads with centuries-old cobblestones. It’s an adventure out on the hills, discovering historic villages that are a treasure to Brazil and to mankind.
It’s a trip for experienced cyclists, we will do it with saddle bags and no support vehicle. Group spirit is essential. Every cyclist will carry his/her own luggage: few spare clothes, climate is warm.
