Pedalentos was created in 2012 during a bicycle trip in south coast of Brazil. Pedalentos is the mix of two words in Portuguese, Pedalar (ride) + Lento (slow) that shows the idea of slow cycling and a personal translation of Slow Biking, a traditional Dutch competition where the winner is the one who is able to stay on a bycicle more time without putting his/her feet on the ground and cross the finish line in the last position.

Our goal is stimulating people, of all ages, to cycling and collaborate to change cities in better places to live.
