We are on an ~18-month bicycle tour through South America. We've started in Medellin, Colombia and will be heading south through Ecuador and Peru until it's springtime in the southern hemisphere. Then we'll head to Santiago and ride south through Patagonia to catch summer there. 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.
We're in northern Peru, heading slowly southward through high, dry mountains filled with Inca and pre-Inca ruins.
You can see our track on the map below (for some reason you have to zoom out and scroll down to South America) 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.
Heading south from Ecuador’s volcanoes, we discovered colorful history in the cities, the people, and the archaeological ruins.
This website is where we'll periodically post our photos and stories from the road. Please subscribe now if you want to receive an email from us when we post a new blog entry.
