This is a medium level mountain bike tour through the Atlantic rainforest reserves of the Discovery Coast World Heritage Site in southern Bahia (see tour itinerary and map).
The tour passes the northern part of the Araçuai belt and the northeastern border of the São Francisco Craton, where some of the oldest (> 3,4 Ga) South American rocks have been reported, where 90 million years ago the last cratonic bridge between the South American Platform and Africa is said to have existed and where 500 years ago Brazil was (officially) discovered.
Geomorphologically, the area is divided into inland round shaped, Precambrian metamorphic and magma gneis outcrops, the most famous one Monte Pascoal, tertiary sedimentary limestone plateaus with tabular hills intersected by river and stream valleys and quarternary mobile sediments and sands including paleodunes separated from the limestone plateaus by white or reddish cliffs.
