After 14 months and 12 days we arrived back to Ipanema Beach, the point we cycled off from at the start of our trip around South America.

20,000km the stats

20,000km the stats

We reached 20,000km just south of Salvador on the Brazilian coast. Idyllic sounding, it was actually the rainiest day of our cycle trip around South America so far, and we only stopped for a few minutes to celebrate.

10,000km: the stats so far

10,000km: the stats so far

In the blistering heat of the Sechura Desert we celebrated cycling 10,000km since we left Rio de Janeiro. In the process we have survived the traffic in Buenos Aires, cycled up the Andes in the snow and sweated it out in the Atacama Desert.

Up and over the Andes

Up and over the Andes

The idea was to cycle up and over the Andes in the spring. However, it’s still winter and we ended up snowed-in for several days waiting for the road to reopen.

Pedalling About

We're Paddy and Laura. From May 2011 to July 2012 we cycled 21,000km around South America. Now, we're back in London doing the daily commute by bike, touring around the UK when we can and dreaming of where else we might go with our bikes.
