Riding in Sao Paulo (3)

You probably noticed I changed the blog’s header. The new image is from Ibirapuera’s park. This is my road. It’s where I go 5-6 times a week to run. But for the first time I was there with my bike, and it was nice to ride there. They have recently repaired the asphalt and painted the bike path, so everything is new and it’s perfect for running or cycling. The repair is not 100% completed, but it should be soon. I stil hope they’ll put km markers that weren’t present before.

This is my road

I grabbed my bike today and went to the park to take some pictures. I was looking for a new image for the blog and I think it was nice the one I chose. Today was a cloudy day, temperature around 20C and no sign of the Sun.

Early morning at Ibirapuera

It has rained the night before and not too many people decided to wake up early this Sunday and go there. On a sunny day, it get’s really crowded and it becomes very difficult to run.

Lake area at Ibirapuera

The park is not the biggest of the city but it’s considered to be the most famous one. It has:

  • The Museum of Contemporary Art
  • The Museum of Modern Art
  • A sports gymnasium
  • a cooper track, volley/basket courts
  • and much more…

There are lots of attractions there that I still haven’t been. So many places to visit and take pictures that one post is not enough.

Ibirapuera's Park

Today I discovered there’s a bike rental service there. It’s located near Gate 3. So, if you ever come here and want to get a bike and enjoy the park, you know where to look for.
