After 4 days and 1300 km we reached Cracow, Poland's secret capital. It is a SPECTACULAR place, especially if the weather is as it is right now. The city is bogging and throbbing with life, just amazing!

Depois de 4 dias e 1300 km chegamos a Cracóvia, capital secreta da Polônia. É um lugar espetacular, especialmente se o tempo é como é agora. A cidade é bogging e pulsando com a vida, simplesmente fantástico!

Day 3 of this special tour saw the group riding through Czech mountains once again. Beautiful roads, amazing scenery, and an interesting communication problem while ordering lunch. It was nice and cool in the mountains, but once we came back down to the plains we could enjoy 37°C once again. What a summer! Good thing we spend the night in an old castle, it's nice and cool behind the thick walls...

Dia 3 deste tour especial viu o grupo a cavalo pelas montanhas checas mais uma vez. Estradas bonitas, paisagens incríveis, e um problema de comunicação interessante ao requisitar o almoço. Foi agradável e fresco nas montanhas, mas uma vez que voltamos para as planícies que pudéssemos desfrutar de 37 ° C, mais uma vez. O que um verão! Boa coisa que passar a noite em um castelo velho, é agradável e fresco por trás das grossas paredes ...

12 Brazilians - 5 girls and 7 guys - are out for an adventure in the eastern part of Central Europe. Czech Republic, a small part of Germany, southern Poland and Slovakia are on the list.

Day one took us from the amazing city of Prague to Dresden, which is just as amazing. It was a hot day, with temperatures soaring to 38,5°C (101°F), but the ride was beautiful. Today we're back in CZ, but crossed through Poland twice.

Stay tuned for more!


12 brasileiros - cinco meninas e sete rapazes - estão fora para uma aventura na parte oriental da Europa Central. República Checa, uma pequena parte da Alemanha, sul da Polônia e da Eslováquia estão na lista.

Um dia nos levou da surpreendente cidade de Praga a Dresden, que é tão incrível. Era um dia quente, com temperaturas que sobem para 38,5 ° C (101 ° F), mas o passeio foi lindo. Hoje estamos de volta em CZ, mas cruzou pela Polônia duas vezes.

Fique ligado para mais!

Are those the very famous Brazilians Marcelo, Cris, Evandro and Monica? Last year it was plenty of rain and this year lots of heat. Next year perfect! Enjoy.

Lui, next year you will join us! I guess we will not need the rain coat again!
As Evandro said, start planing for Nice!

Evandro & Marcelo your trip looks amazing. I am doing the Pyrenees in September. Nice sounds good for next year! Have fun.

Pyrenees is the best for curves! People thing Alps is the most challeging for curves, but it is not! When you reach Toses you will understand my point... Great choice!!!
