We set off in October 2017 to cycle 10,000km from the bottom to the top of South America on a pair of worryingly wonky bamboo bikes.
Our fibrous steeds are homemade with natural materials and many a helping hand. A labour of love, sweat and tears, the bikes will carry us through Patagonian peat bogs, up and over 5000m passes and into the steamy tropics.
Along the way we’re stopping to meet some of South America’s most inspiring movers, shakers, recyclers and makers in the form of local conservation heroes, sustainability gurus and generally awesome folk doing their bit to care for the planet. Our mission will be to share their stories and raise money for some great causes. But let’s not beat about the bamboo bush, it’s also going to be one helluva great adventure.
