British Columbia to Patagonia
Am new to this site. In the last month my girlfriend and I have decided that we are going to pack our jobs in and cycle south hopefully all the way to the bottom. Would probably class us as semi experienced as we both have some experince of long distance cycling (have ridden from Toronto to Vancouver). We re both of an above average fitness.
We are hoping to be setting off around mid may 2009 from Powell River (on BCs coast a couple of hundred miles north of vancouver). The route as it stands would be through vancouver island, and then straight down the west coast of the states, through central america to panama city, then flying (due to a gap in the network) to maybe lima Peru and continuing south.
This is just first ideas really, let me know what you think in terms of gear etc.
As it stands i am in need of a new bike, so any recommendations would be useful
