Cycling Atlantic to Andes
Having run through five South American countries on his Running the Americas adventure, Jamie was keen to adventure across three he hadn’t visited.
In February 2017, Jamie cycled from his flat to Victoria station, got the train to Gatwick Airport and fled to Sao Paolo. From there he cycled 3700km across Brazil, Paraguay and up into the Andes of Bolivia.
The adventure was completely solo and unsupported with challenges including the Chaco in Paraguay, climbing the Andes (4700m) and cycling across the Salar de Uyuni during the wet season. The trip finished with cycling from 4700m to 1200m down the Death Road near Bolivia.
