Day 493: Stepping into the Andes

QuickPeek: Back on the road. Gentle uphills. Stunning views. Lovely campsite.

We decided to start today, mostly because Krista was back in shape and eating full meals and ,of course, we’ve been in San Agustin for almost a week. The place had been great with some lovely hikes and the hostel… Continue Reading →

Days 487-492: Days in San Agustin

QuickPeek: Rest Days. Recovery. Craft. Hiking. Cooking. Chill!

So the point of being in San Agustin was to have a good place we could rest and recover and build up energy. Bambu was a sweet little spot with some nice quiet people and the folks running the place… Continue Reading →

Day 486: Eventually getting to San Agustin

QuickPeek: Short Ride. Lots of Traffic. Exhaust fumes.

So this morning, Krista was still not eating much food, but was feeling good enough to ride. We planned an early start but the bakeries opened late and by the time we hit the road it was 8 AM. The… Continue Reading →

Day 485: A trial ride testing for energy levels

QuickPeek: Rolling hills. Deep Gorges. Riverside ride.

The rest day and sleep seemed to have done a world of good for Krista and she was up and ready to ride at 6 AM. I packed up my bags, but was wary that it might be too early… Continue Reading →

Days 483-484: A pleasant ride to Altamira, followed by a sick break

QuickPeek: Rolling hills. Bit of traffic. Short day.

The original plan we had turned out to be woo aggressive, 65 km followed by a 75 km day to San Agustin. The hills are reasonably graded, but this being Krista’s first week with a decently fitted bike, her legs… Continue Reading →

Day 482: A lovely hill climb on a short day

QuickPeek: Good hill climb. Nice views. Rain!

We planned an early start, but it was nearly 7:30 when we hit the road though. What with the really pleasant truck stop we had with some wonderful views of the hills, a sweet-as b’fast and pleasant people. The day… Continue Reading →

Day 481: A short but lovely day of riding

QuickPeek: Overcast. Flat. Good people.

We planned an early start today to beat the heat and were up at 5 am. There was a bit of packing to be done (though we did most of it in the night) too. As we were heading out,… Continue Reading →

Day 480: A shiva bike emerges for Krista

QuickPeek: Bike setup - Done. Another Singaporean!

Our target today was to get the bike setup and with the leads we had yesterday, it was going to be a pretty straightforward setup, fit and test situation. We got up early and headed for a cup of coffee… Continue Reading →

Day 479: Successful scouting of accessesories

QuickPeek: Custom RainFly. Lateral thinking Bike shops. Awesome!

We had a few things that needed to be done while in a sizable town. First up was to ensure we got enough rest and Krista recovered form her aches and scrapes. In line with that, we needed to find… Continue Reading →

Day 478: Hobbled down to Neiva

QuickPeek: Hot. Rolling hills. Awesome Hosts.

We had a short day to do today to get to the town of Neiva. I had contacted a nice Couchsurfing host and we planned to get there by noon. We had a bit of leeway in terms of the… Continue Reading →

Day 477: A full day of rolling hills

QuickPeek: Full day. Cloudy. Wonderful Scenery.

We looked at maps yesterday in the sketchy internet and it seemed that we either had to 90K day or settle for a 60. I thought a 70-75 K day would be ideal given out fitness levels and Krista’s niggling… Continue Reading →

Day 476: Rest day, in a not so pretty town

QuickPeek: Rest day. Mending.

After the day of excruciating heat and fit issues with Krista‚Äôs bike, we decided it might be wise to take the day off and rest the body a bit and hydrate instead of pushing on for distance. We wanted to… Continue Reading →

Day 475: Riding the heat thro rice and cow country

QuickPeek: Flat ride. Heat. Farmlands.

We had been warned, by everyone we met, that we were riding into a furnace. Well, we were braced for it, but the heat was truly something special. We started the day early, I was up at 5 but waited… Continue Reading →

Day 474: Down the hill and into the heat

QuickPeek: Lovely lunch. Cool off in a pool. Bomberos!

We decided to start the day at a comfortable time and we were up early and did some repacking. Near 8, we head out for a quick b’fast and regrouped at the hotel. It was sunny and 9 am when… Continue Reading →

Day 473: Silvania was a good place to take a day off

QuickPeek: Rest Day. Short Hike.

So we decided to take the day off since we were in a really nice little village. There is no hurry in a bike journey and it’s probably more important to be on the road with a positive attitude than… Continue Reading →
