We sometimes bike by necessity (looking for food!) more than by choice (hello no driver's license), but thankfully, at Companhia das Culturas we knew we were well-covered on the food side so the biking was all leisure. They offered to lend us bikes and more importantly gave us a small map of the neighbouring paths that they edit themselves. This saved us the trouble of looking for nice itineraries and kept us from ending on some high-speed road. Instead, we headed for the salt ponds nearby and took a very nice ride among the pink flamingos and the clear waters.
