Route: Pico do Jaragua
Distance: 32.3 miles
It might not be one of the world-famous views that come to mind when people picture Brazil (say, thong bikinis on Copacabana Beach), but what you see at the top of Pico do Jaraguá is something worth experiencing. The highest mountain in São Paulo is easily accessible from the city on two wheels, making it a favorite ride for locals who like suffering up 3,910 feet in the early morning light. When you reach the summit, the spectacular city vistas will be waiting for you.
