I will be cycling through Brazil this summer.

This summer I will be cycling 3500 kilometres from Porto Alegre in southern Brazil, to Salvador Da Bahia in Northeast Brazil. I’m doing it because I am going to see Brazil and Denmark play a football game at the olympics.

Why cycle 3500 kilometers for a football game?

The route I will be cycling.

The route I will be cycling.

I have always liked long bicycle trips, as they keep me fit and work as meditation for me, after some weeks of having a stressful job as a tour guide around the world. Being a football geek, who also loves to Travel the world to watch football games, I thought I would just make this trip. 

 

I love watching football around the world.

I love watching football around the world.

And I love Brazil.

I have been coming to Brazil regularly since 1992 and have visited the country 16 times so far. I have seen a lot of the country, but Brazil is huge (it’s roughly half the surface of South America). So I always find places there that I have not seen before. And I love to travel off the beaten path in Brazil, because I think the biggest attraction in Brazil are the Brazilians.

I love Brazil.

I love Brazil.

I will cycle up the coast of Brazil this summer.

 

My plan is to pretty much stick to the coast. I prefer to avoid most mountains that way. I will start in Porto Alegre and then cycle up to Florianopolis. Go just past big cities like Curitiba and Sao Paulo and head up to Rio de Janeiro, where I will pass a couple of days. See how the Olympic stadium looks and so on. Then I will continue up the coast to Bahia, via the state of Espirito Santo. And hopefully roll into Salvador Da Bahia in the beginning of August, as the game between Brazil and Denmark is on august 10th.

 

I will be posting updates on my blog as the trip proceeds. And I will be posting several times a week during my trip on my Facebook profile as well.

If you happen to be in Brazil this summer while I am doing my trip, then you are most welcome to drop me a line. I love to meet up with fellow humans. No matter what country you are from.

See you all in Brazil this summer :-).

I have since I wrote this finished the trip. And you can read a few things about it, starting on this link.

See you all in Brazil this summer.
