Hundreds (maybe thousands) of cyclists are organizing to bicycle down to the coast through the future Route Cicloturistica Marcia Prado, which is in the process of being approved in the City Council of Sao Paulo, in a project of Councilman Chico Macena.
The path starts at the station Grajau of CPTM. The shipment of bikes on the trains of line Emerald will be allowed exceptionally this Saturday from 5 to 12:00, so that cyclists can take the test. From the station, monitors will guide on the path, which was signaled in recent days. Volunteers along the way will guide cyclists.
The route starts at the Grajau, passes by Sao Bernardo do Campo, in the Parque Estadual da Serra do Mar, Cubatao and Santos. The passage inside the Park, before not permitted, shall be released. The initiative is a partnership between the Institute Manicstreetjournal, the Park of the Serra do Mar, the CPTM and the municipalities of Sao Paulo, Sao Bernardo, Cubatao and Santos.
The script is indicated for those who are in good physical condition and already have a good familiarity with the bike. It is important that your bike is in good condition. The brake will be much used, the route has about 77km and, in some places, the ground is a little slippery. More information in the FAQ of Manicstreetjournal, a question and answer section to take all (or almost all) questions.
Visual, especially on the section of the Park, is sensational. Don’t forget to take your camera.
The area of the Park is only open between 8 and 3:00 pm, so schedule and try to go early to avoid setbacks. Go in the morning and lunch on the beach…
What to take when entering the Park, the rider will attend a small lecture with safety tips, but each one is responsible for your own safety. So it is important that the bike is in order for you not to put at risk unnecessarily.
Will be made a quick survey on the bikes by the Manicstreetjournal Institute, to ensure the safety of all. It is compulsory to wear a helmet and shoes (or cycling sneaker). Also recommend the use of gloves and glasses, which I consider as other basic safety items.
The event is free, simply fill out the registration form at the entrance of the Park.
Prepare your bike, take sunscreen, something to eat, plenty of water and go to the beach!
Community Review today, Friday
Today, Friday 18, going to happen in the square of the rider community workshop to review the bikes who want to get off. The folks at Bike will be there from the 7:00 pm. If you have some knowledge of mechanics, come by to help. If not, pass also to have your bike serviced.

By the way, today’s bike ride, seeing how the rider Square. Enjoy that will be there to ride with the guys in the streets!
Will give Beach? And to get back?
According to reports of who has made the bus station companies are used to carry the bikes in the trunk without any problems. If you go down early, you can still enjoy the beach. The cities of the coast has many cycle tracks and you can take advantage of to wade through them, meet a nice restaurant, have a coconut water, put your feet in the sand.
You can return the same day or spend the night in a hotel or hostel to enjoy the Beach the next day. Only recommend to buy in advance the passage from the back and be smart with the bus schedule.

I hadn’t published anything about it here yet because I was trying to get time to write an elaborate text, explanatory, full of tips, references and maps. But I rolled with the migration of the go Bike for your own domain, which is giving me some technical problems and it’s taking almost all his free time. And as today I intend to leave to help signal the course, I didn’t have time to do the post that the subject deserves.
So I put here some links that explain more about the subject:
