Hello Toto, what kind of riding do you do in Argentina? And, what bike or bikes are you riding? Oh, and what part of Argentina? It's a big place you know!

As for now i am only riding on the streets in the city, every time i have a chace to go off-road somethings comes in my way and i can't go and eat some dirt!
Currently i am In Buenos Aires, Capital Federal! to be more exact in Barrancas de Belgrano ( thats the neighborhood).

I will not TAG Buenos Aires as a BikerFriendly place, you need to be very carefull, the pedestrians think they are the king of the road and they think thay can cross the streets from or whenever they like, and the bus/car drivers act like you are not there, but with that in mind, and knowing your surroundings, argentina has very nice places to go biking, one of my favorites quick routes is to go from my house to Tigre

( I was bored so i went to Tigre with my GPS and trak the whole route! )

I dont have apanniers installed on my bike! but i can at least carry 5 bottles in my big backpack ;)

this might disappoint you, but i am not a soccer fan! so i have no answer to that ;), but my father is a BIG BIG fan of River! ;)

Well thak you all for the wellcomes! and be prepared for all my questions! ;)

regards/saludos!
Toto

We are ready for those questions! It is a very good thing to be able to work on one's bike--I have 12 bikes myself, and would hate to have to pay someone to fix them all for me!
