We would like to welcome you to the 2015 South American Epic Bicycle Expedition!
You will be cycling this amazing continent from top to tip; starting in Cartagena, Columbia on the shores of the Caribbean; up and down the Andes ‘a few times’; covering Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina; exploring the Bolivian Salt Flats, Lake Titicaca and Machu Picchu; visiting some of the grand cities like Bogota, Quito, Lima, La Paz, Santiago; cycling through the stunning Patagonia region of southern Chile and Argentina, and finishing in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego on the shores of the Drake Passage. Along the way you will pedal through 14 UNESCO World Heritage sites, a dozen National Parks and numerous other areas of historical and archeological interest.
We are pleased to announce the inclusion of a Stage Race component as part of the 2015 South American Epic Tour. Moreover, because the SA Epic will be the world’s longest Expedition on 2 wheels, covering a colossal 13,740 km between Cartagena, Colombia and Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, in a little over 5 months, it will also gain the title of the World’s Longest Stage Race, surpassing the 11,700 km of our very own Tour d’Afrique.
