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.

During our cycle ride around South America, we used our stove to cook most of our meals. Initially, we had the MSR Whisperlite but changed to the Primus Omnistove after the former developed an ‘unfixable’ fault.
