COLOMBIA: Bogota - Mocoa: back to denivelation – retour a la denivelee
We exit the big city of Bogotá following the valley of Magdalena River. First a long downhill that brings us from over 2,500mts to just 500mts. The first contacts to the local people are friendly, they are not used to see many tourists and they always...

COLOMBIA: Bogota
Bienvenidos a Colombia: The only risk is that you stay! Despite all the bad reputation that this country might have due to the violence, weapon dealers, drug cartels, paramilitary, revolutionary groups such as ELN or FARC we find a very rich and beautiful...

PANAMA: more than the canal
After the first serious thunderstorms in our travel through the Americas (the rainy season has started!) we leave Costa Rica and jump into Panama. Instantaneously we feel the difference: the population is much more diverse (Asian, Americans, Europeans,...

COSTA RICA: pura vida!
We enter in a new country: Costa Rica! Guanacaste province seems dry and hot and the road turns quite busy and hectic with not much shoulder till Puntarenas. Afterwards the ride along the Pacific brings us more peace and flat roads. Costa Rica is a big...

NICARAGUA : Colonial cities and more volcanoes – villes coloniales et davantage de volcans
Perhaps our favourite country in Central America so far, why? Nicaragua has very hospitable and honest people, the food is good and there are plenty of things to see: colonial cities and nice landscape. León and Granada are great examples of colonial...

EL SALVADOR & HONDURAS, rainy mangoes – pluie de mangues!
After the great cycling through Guatemala we decide to move to El Salvador, another little country with a violent past (the civil war finished in 1992) and still trying to reduce the big gap between poor and rich. The country has excellent places for...

MEXICO: Chiapas
The road between Palenque and San Cristóbal de las Casas is very scenic. We enjoy very much riding on these continous climbs that lead you from 100m to a final altitude of 2,200m. The temperature is fresh and on the way we can see blue water rivers, jungle,...
