Nossa, que mineiros aqui! =p
I lived in BH for about 7 months in 2005 and then returned for another 1.5 months 2006!
Unfortunately, when I was there I wasn't in to bikes as much, but I always admired cyclists for having pretty big saco for riding the roads down there. I recall taking the bus to BH Shopping and seeing road cyclists on the freeway and just thinking...wow.
I was more into climbing then and would hang out at BH Vertical and go to Serra do Cipo to climb.
What do you do in BH? When I was there studying in 2005 I befriended some guys at Contact CRJ (Centro do Referencia da Juventude) near Aglomorado Serra. Check them out if you have a chance. Maybe get some of the youth into it.
Entao, bem vindo ao Bike Forums cara. Eu espero que voce vai adorar esta forums. Meu portugues nao eh bom de mais agora, mas eu posso tentar ainda! =p
Edited to add: I can't imagine the hill climbs you guys have in and around BH! So jealous.
