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.”
