Road cycling in Brasilia

by Mezambo Online Now Mar 8, 2007 at 10:59 PM

I am an American considering moving to Brasilia. I'm an avid road bicyclist and play saxophones in a big band. I was wondering if there are any bike clubs and if the roads are good for cycling. Also wondering what opportunities there are for playing music.
Thank you for any help,

    I wouldn't recommend bicycling here. Roads aren't bicycle friendly, and many drivers are horrible, driving like complete selfish idiots. One family we knew here in Brasilia had a teen daughter killed whiled she was bicycling.

    But what do you expect of a country where people think it's normal to have a baby via major abdominal surgery? I fear for the U.S. as the c-section rate there continues to climb, too. People born via violence are going to think violence is normal.
