Pedaling through the streets of the capital with the “Mountain Bike BH” group

From BH to the world

It would be only a toy made with corn straw or leather and adorned with feathers, to be tossed around during the tribe’s rituals and festivals. But the Tupi Indians’ creation ended up winning fans around the world. The peteca (a type of shuttlecock) came to prominence at the Olympics in Antwerp, Belgium.


In the scenario of the Pampulha Lake, the image of the Jornalista Felipe Drummond Stadium, known popularly as Mineirinho, stands closer by the Mineirão as more one of the sports and architecture icons of Belo Horizonte.

Azure Passion


The fanatic is the supporter in the mad house. (…) The fanatic gets to the stadium covered by the team flag, painted face with the colors of the beloved t-shirt, holding shrill and potent objects and, and oh his way, he comes making a lot of noise and a lot of mess.(…)In epilepsy state he looks at the game, but doesn´t see it. Yours is the tribune (…).

Burning love in black an white

Atlético Mineiro

If there is a Black and white T-shirt  hanged in a clothes-line during a storm, the atleticano ( supporter of the Atlético Mineiro) stands  for the T-shirt against the wind.

Ah, what is to be ateticano? Is this a disease?
a madcap love?
a pagan religion ?
a blessing from the heaven?
Is it the big fortune?  
The first and only one commandment of the atleticano is to be loyal and
love the  Galo above all the other things...

BH Opens its heart to the World Cup of 2014

The biggest pleasure of those who enjoy to host is to organize their house, put a fresh flower’s vase here, a new curtain there and to put everything in its place in order receive with tenderness the guest that is about to come.

In the case of a house as big as Belo Horizonte, that is preparing itself to host a World Cup in four years from now, the work one’s got to do is huge. We have to straighten our streets, organize the traffic, decorate the streets, reform our stadiums, close some deals and open a wide smile.


The capital is located near important touristic destinations such as the Rota Lund (Lund Route), with its precious archeological material and numerous caves, home of Luzia, the oldest fossil in the American continent. Right in front we have the Serra do Cipó National Park, a well-known spot for adventure tourism.
