Our tour began back in September when we decided to ride to a friend's wedding in L.A. When we left Vancouver, we had never been on a bike trip before and didn't even know how to change a flat tire.
Despite our lack of knowledge, we made it to the wedding... and then we kept going. Now, we've ridden through Oregon, California, Baja Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, and are halfway through Colombia.
Our plan is to keep biking south to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. This route is over 10,000 kilometers and will take us about six months of cycling (weather dependent).
Although we live frugally on the road, costs do come up for food, water, bike parts, camping fees, accommodation, etc. These expenses are unavoidable which is why we’re reaching out to our friends and families for some extra help.
We will also be donating half of everything we raise to WE Charity! As rewarding as it has been to bike through countries for ourselves, we'd like to be able to support others along the way. We've chosen WE as our selected charity because of their experience and dedication to providing sustainable assistance as a way to empower communities. They do this by focusing on five pillars: education, food, health, water and opportunity. Furthermore, WE Charity has projects in Ecuador, which is one of the countries that we will be cycling to. For more information on WE Charity visit WE.org.
We know that biking through South America is a bit crazy and it can be very challenging at times, but it is an experience unlike anything else and we’re not ready to give it up just yet! If you'd like to help us keep going, and raise funds for WE Charity we would really appreciate it <3
