Studies have shown that riding a bicycle, getting to know Brasilia and making friends, all at the same time, makes anyone feel much more cool than they already are! In the Bike Tour , you will have a great opportunity to verify this by cycling through a circuit with the most beautiful and expressive architectural works of the great Oscar Niemeyer, the poet of curves, and several masterpieces integrated into his work.
The paternity of the urban sketching is of Lucio Costa, but it was Niemeyer who "reinvented the modernism with its own language and national identity. They will stop to see it - this will be a moment of surprise and enchantment, " he said. What exerted a great influence in the world architecture and that, among other things, appeared in Brasília by the lines of Oscar in a intense way, was the innovation of the lightness of reinforced concrete structures
We start from our bike rack to the TV Tower in the Monumental Axis, from there you can see the whole route and important maps that explain a lot about Brasilia. From the TV Tower, we go to the central sectors that are more densely built, closer to each other and have the tallest buildings. There the Gregarious Scale predominates and it is from where the two wings, South and North, arise. The Sectors are the South Commercial, South Hospital Medical Sector, South Entertainment Sector, the Upper Platform of the Central Bus Station, and the National Theater in the North Cultural Sector. Returning to the Monumental Scale we proceed to the Cultural Complex of the Republic (National Library and Museum), Metropolitan Cathedral, southern part of the Esplanada dos Ministérios, Itamaraty, Praça dos Três Poderes (National Congress, Supreme Federal Court and Planalto Palace), Lucio Costa Space, Ministry of Justice, northern part of the Esplanade of the Ministries, Central Bus Station of Brasília.
