A feeling of power and indescribable freedom! This is how the participants of the Bike Cana-a cycling event that reaches the 18th year, in 2015 – define what they feel when going through the routes on their bikes. This year Bike Cana will have a program full of fun, entertainment and adventure. Participants will leave Piranga / MG on May 16, continue to Lavras Novas / MG and return the next day to Piranga / MG, totaling a course of 108 km. The event is open to the public and, in order to participate, the interested party must register at out site.

Script

Super interesting itineraries will mark the 18th year of Bike Cana. One of them is the cycle route from Piranga to Lavras Novas, in Minas Gerais, with 633 m and 1,365 m altitude respectively, which received the nickname “Extreme” due to the great altimetric variation between the two cities. The route will cut beautiful landscapes and pass through an area that presents a very rich historical and geographical context of the colonial past of Minas Gerais, traveling along paths traveled by the bandeirantes, colonizers and tropeiros in the 17th and 18th centuries.

About Bike Cana

Bike Cana is a cycling event that emerged in 1997 from an adventure of five friends of Presidente Bernardes / MG (Calambau). They traveled 120 km by bicycle for two days on dirt roads and since then the journey has become a tradition and has been growing every year. In 2015 Bike Cana completes its 18th year.

Initially it was called “Cycling Towards the Festival of Cachaça”, due to the event happening before the traditional Festival of the Cana of the city of its creators. Then it was simplified to Bike Cana, which also refers to the term “cool.”
