Getting ready for our next journey

Welcome back….in mid May we are off again back to South America on our bicis – the leaves have mostly fallen here in Wanaka after an amazing autumn and the early snow on the hills is refusing to melt

The plan..we fly into Huaraz, the mountain town sorrounded by 6000m peaks that we finished up in back inĀ  2014. After some acclimatisation time we will head through northern Peru to the border with Ecuador and then follow a route, coined the Trans Equador Mountain Bike Route (TEMBR – dirt road version) in thru to finish in Quito or thereabouts. Lots of dirt roads and lots of elevation gain and loss lies ahead for us.

We have had some fun little trips leading up to heading off – haven’t done as much mileage as wanted but fitness will be forced on us when we hit those Peruvian hills!.
