|Cycling from Argentina to Alaska
tour started November 2008, submitted 6 April 2008
Two Poole based intrepid travellers are setting off on a journey of a lifetime to raise funds for a local charity, Julia's House and the international charity, SOS Children's Villages.
Kelly and Dave will be starting in Ushuaia, at the Southern tip of Argentina in South America and will cycle to Alaska, the extreme northwest portion of the North American continent.
They anticipate that they will be on the road for up to 2 years, facing extreme weather conditions and the challenging terrain that the American continent has to offer. They plan to cycle the world's driest desert and the high altitude mountain regions of the Andes.
By doing the trip by bicycle they are hoping it will bring them closer to the environment and learn about the ever changing world that we live in and aim to leave minimal impact upon the environment.
