One More Year, Please: I’m Extending My Bike Ride From Argentina to Alaska!

I’ve been CyclingAbout The Americas for 16 months now, covering around 25,000km across eight countries. The journey so far has taken me up the highest road in the world (5815m/19078ft), across deserts, salt flats and along the Peru Divide, my favourite touring route in the world.

I have fallen 30 metres off a cliff, pushed my bike across Ecuador’s toughest terrain, waited days for the snow to stop falling on my tent and nearly been killed by hundreds of trucks in Brazil. I have slept hundreds of nights under the stars, hiked the world’s most iconic trails and made more friends than I could possibly count.

After all of these great adventures, I’m very far behind my original schedule for this trip. I think I could still make it to Alaska sometime this year, but I’d have to skip through Central America at a pace much faster than would do the countries justice.

So I’ve decided to extend my trip for a full year.

1. I’m having a really good time out here.
2. I’ve been travelling on the smallest possible roads which are making my progress slower.
3. My big accident in Peru set me back a few months.
4. I’m spending a lot more time per month making films and sharing photos than I originally anticipated.
5. KOGA like the idea of me testing their WorldTraveller-S into 2020.
