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.
