Praia do Forte is only 70km away from Salvador but it took us pretty much the whole day to cycle there ( 8 hours?) Not that we didn't enjoy it but it was definitely a necessary test-ride for our cheap new bikes… We started pedaling from Farol de Barra, the fort at the extreme south west of Salvador (2 minutes away from our hotel) and followed the littoral all the way to Praia do Forte.

Nice beaches
Hi Jeremy, The pictures make me wanna go to the beach as well!! Reading your story about your tent, reminded me of the wind in Mongolia: I really thought that my tent will not be strong enough for such wind!

camping in Brazil was absolutely epic!
I might make a whole blog entry on this part of the trip! Beaches in Bahia were very nice. Wait for my next blog on Boipeba or Itacare: splendid and pristine!
