Ben & Steph’s Cycling Adventure
In September 2017 we flew to Ushuaia, Argentina to begin our cycling adventure. We have a general idea of the direction we might cycle and what we would like to see on the way, but connecting those dots has been left unscripted, awaiting local advice and seeing where the road takes us.
Update: 27th February 2019
Current Location: Colombia
It has been 17 months since we left the UK and so far we have cycled through 8 countries on the South American continent (Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador) and generally in a northerly direction. We took a detour from the typical touring cyclists' route which follows the Andes, deciding to cycle from Valparaiso on the western coast of Chile to the beaches on the eastern coast of Uruguay. Although this wasn't always the most interesting in terms of scenery, we met some of the most incredible people on this part of the trip and also got to visit the incredible Iguazu Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world.
We had a brief trip back to the UK over Christmas and New Year (2019), which was great, but it has renewed our enthusiasm for life on the bikes again and seeing what lies ahead. Now we are back following the Andes mountains, currently exploring the mountain ranges of Colombia and sadly the last country we will cycle on the South American continent. There’s still a few months here yet though so keep an eye on our social media for more regular updates and we’ll keep the blog posts coming. Hola Colombia!
