500 years later, the sun still shines brightly, the native people are friendly and the landscape continues to astonish the ones who cross the paths of this part of our country. The Route of Discovery, which goes from Arraial d’Ajuda to Prado, can be considered the same paradise as the one found by Pedro Alvares Cabral and his crew when they first landed in Brazil in April 22, 1500. Despite the villages and the human occupation since then, the region still has many untouched spots with crystal clear water and diversified fauna and flora. We can find over 450 different species of flora in the Atlantic Forest. We can also spot over 400 different species of bird there. This is the reason the first Portuguese people who landed there thought they have reached paradise. The area was considered World Natural Heritage, i.e. it is a region, which should be preserved indefinitely. Beside the already existing National park called Monte Pascoal, two new National parks were created recently: Pau-Brasil (in Porto Seguro) and Descobrimento (in Prado). And this is the region chosen by Sampabikers to ride our bikes across this wonderful landscape. During the whole program, we need to be alert to the sea level. We shall ask local fishermen before leaving each morning. During low tide the ride is easier on the wet sand. Also it is good to have empty tyres to ride on the sand.
