362: Bike park
Not only the Dutch, but also the Brazilians love to cycle. It is a cheap means of transport, it doesn’t pollute the enviroment, it might economize in transportation spendings and in transportation time, and it is very good for your health to cycle. No wonder that the bicycle is gaining popularity in the immense country. However, there are certain locations where it is hard to cycle around. Like the mountainous historic cities of Ouro Preto, Mariana, Diamantina, or even Belo Horizonte. In contrast, along the many beaches in Brazil, you will notice many people cycling, and they are not only foreign tourists. And they need to park their bike too. In Guarapari, they will meet a bike park like this one in the photo.
