The advice we picked up from other cyclists and websites whilst we were planning was invaluable. For that reason we thought we would put together a list of equipment we loved and that we hated, along with a few top tips from our time cycling around South America.
Laura and Paddy's adventures by bike
We’ve been planning for 18 months and have undertaken an enormous amount of research. We leave in just over a month and wanted to share our top five lessons about what we now know about preparing for a trip such as this.
We’d love it if you could join us for a few farewell beers on Friday 6 May. We’ll be upstairs in the Camel and Artichoke, Waterloo from 5pm until 12 when we absolutely must get the final train home.
It’s hard to convey how excited we were heading to Bridgwater to pick up our new bikes to cycle them back to London. Nor how exhausted but impressed we were when we finally made it home.
