I have new tires, Lucinda’s running perfectly, we’re ready to head north, sweep around the coast and then through central Colombia heading south to Ecuador along the mountains
So a very rare thing happened. Another solo rtw rider. I had seen him approach last week on ADV at the bottle neck that Panama/Colombia presents, and so people meet here. He’s Nate from Washington DC. 30, he’s been planning this for three years. I haven’t seen an rtw route that included a lap of both South America and Africa, as his does. Very bold.
He’s headed to Bogota for a week. Our routes intersect later on but there’s no way to figure out the timing so we’ll just stay in touch.
