In the urban jungle

Chris Northover travelled to São Paulo to hang out with Guto Negão, ride the new G 310 R and have a good time. He's impressed by the city, especially the people. All are relaxed in spite of the hustle and bustle and the crowds. Guto lives in São Paulo and is part of the Brazilian longboarding scene. You'll often find him in southern Brazil at the weekends – on his longboard, of course. Chris and Guto make their way together through the huge metropolis. São Paulo is the transport hub of the state of São Paulo. As many as 11.9 million travel the city's streets every day. “Paulistanos”, as São Paulo's inhabitants are called, are a multicultural group. Portuguese, Italian, German, Lebanese and Japanese influences abound in this megacity.
On their way to the mountains, they cross the Estaiada Octávio Frias de Oliveira Bridge, one of the city's major sights. This cable-stayed bridge spans the Pinheiros River. At 1,600 metres long and 138 metres tall, the bridge is an impressive sight, especially at night, and well worth the excursion for motorcyclists. They cross the bridge and head out of the city. Their true adventure begins when Guto gets on his longboard and picks up speed. Together they enjoy the mountains, riding together and the relaxed atmosphere of Brazil. With views over the city one thing quickly becomes clear: This trip was just the beginning.
