This is the first official season I am running my mountain bike adventures in South America!! http://www.alltimerides.com is kicking off the season!! I'm pretty happen to be riding bikes in February!! We kicked off our first trip of the season with new crossing of the Andes mountains from Argentina to Chile. Instead of crossing where we normally cross we hatched over some maps and found a new route that cut off two days of the crossing. The only catch to cutting the days down though was that we would be climbing straight up the side of the mountain as opposed to circling around and taking the casual river vally route! We were in for a good climb for sure but also what comes with steep climbs is beautiful views!
