Tough Rides: Brazil
Ryan Pyle is back on his motorcycle. After successful adventure motorcycle journeys through China and India, Ryan is keen to set out and explore the complexities and diversity of Brazil. This incredible journey will take Ryan from the sunny beaches of Rio de Janeiro, through the mining towns in Minas Gerais, into the deep Amazon and back through the southern metropolises of Florianopolis, Blumenau and Sao Paulo. Ryan Pyle will travel around a country full of contrasts, one-minute Brazil is vibrant and exotic, and the next minute it is crowded and chaotic and then all of a sudden it can feel haunting and empty. Ryan's biggest challenge on this adventure will be taking on some of South America's most dangerous and isolated roads. Join Ryan, as he rides his motorcycle on an epic 14,000km, 60-day circumnavigation around Brazil.
