“Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.”
John F Kennedy

We’ve discovered the simple pleasure of touring by bicycle later in life.

This blog is to share our cycling experiences as we try to avoid all the potholes.

In 2016 we completed our first adventure, taking 7 weeks to pedal 2200 km (1400 miles) from Bath to Barcelona including an unplanned ride over four mountain passes in the Pyrenees.

In 2017 we enjoyed a tour around the beautiful island of Mallorca.

We’ve officially caught the notoriously infectious bicycle-touring-bug.

Now we are setting out on our biggest challenge so far. To cycle through Chile and Argentina, south from Santiago down to Puerto Varas at the heart of the famous Chilean Lake District. Our route includes the Pacific coast, vineyards, volcanoes and the small challenge of crossing the Andes.
