Our South American Tour -           A Napkin Sketch

We are on an ~18-month bicycle tour through South America. We started in Medellín, Colombia, in June 2018 and headed south through the mountains of Ecuador and Perú. When the springtime rains caught us, we dropped down to Lima on the coast and B-lined to Santiago, Chile. From there we ride south through Patagonia during the southern hemisphere's summer. After that we'll return north to explore northern Argentina and Chile, Bolivia, and some locations in Brazil (any suggestions?). We plan to spend most of our time in the Andes, but will let the road take us where it will.

Where are we now?

We flew from Lima, Peru, to Santiago, Chile, on November 6th, and our bicycles arrived a few stressful days later. Now we are thrilled to be back on the bikes, pedaling south through Chile's vineyards and mountain lakes on our way to Patagonia.

 

You can see our track on the map below or, better yet, by visiting our Track My Tour website, where you will also see an up-to-date photo and anecdote from each location we've stayed.

Perú's high Andes

Perú is home to the world's second highest mountain range, with scenery and altitudes that take your breath away. Riding here has been oh-so-worth the challenge.
