Ride to Chile

Phases of the Trip

September 23, 2016

I will be leaving our home in Canby, Oregon the morning of Friday, October 7th, heading south towards Oakhurst, California. 

The ride will be in four phases:

First: California and Arizona visiting churches and family

Second: Mexico and Central America as far as Panama

In Panama I will be shipping my bike to Bogota, Columbia as there is no land connection between the two countries.

Third: Columbia. Ecuador. Peru.

Fourth: Arica, Chile to home in ConcepciĆ³n
