Choosing a destination for our 2013 winter biking trip

Well, we spent a lot of time considering four different locations.

1. Cycling Tasmania and parts of Southern Australia.
Pros – New destination, very scenic, warm weather, good road conditions
Cons – Expensive, some roads are busy, not Spanish speaking country

2. Cycling Cuba
Pros – New destination, Spanish speaking, relatively flat, very scenic, relatively inexpensive, want to see the country before major political changes occur
Cons – Maybe too short a trip for 90 day adventure

3, Back to South East Asia
Pros – Interesting, very warm, several places we didn’t get to see last trip
Cons – Expensive to get to, maybe too soon (we were there last year)

4. Cycling parts of Chile & Argentina
Pros – Amazing scenery, new destination, Spanish speaking, not too expensive
Cons – Mountains, deserts, dirt and gravel roads, volcanos, sections with little food and water, high winds and lots of rain, can get cold in the south of Argentina.

So. Of course we picked South America. Get er done while we can. It is a famous destination for cycling. The camping is amazing along the way.

We fly to Santiago today, bus to Puerto Montt on Jan 4th and bike 2,400 Kim’s to Punta Arenas or Ushuaia (southern tip of Argentina).
