South America 2018-2020

I left home in the UK 2 years ago and cycled through Europe and Africa, sailed across the Atlantic ocean and am now discovering South America. I'm currently in Manaus, in Northern Brazil with no definite end in sight. I will spend about another year in South America, maybe more, riding mountain and dirt roads mostly. I am heading south west-ish to Cusco in Peru from here, visiting Macchu Pichu and then south through the Andes. I have chosen some routes from bikepacking.com and andesbybike.com although these can be modified along the way depending on the road and weather.

I prefer to camp and cook my food but also use roadside eateries and sometimes hotels etc. I have a fairly lightweight setup, but due to the length of the trip I also like to carry a few extras for entertainment.

I enjoy riding with others but also happy on my own. I am young for my age, enjoy reading, music and being outdoors. I have a true British sense of humour and a belief in human nature.

Do you want to ride in South America? Drop me a line. Company is always welcome.
