Daves Travel Pages
by Dave, tour started 2010, submitted 17 April 2010

My name is Dave Briggs, and I am an Adventure Cyclist from England. My current cycling trip, is to cycle the Pan-American route from the very north of Alaska to the south of Argentina. I began my journey in July 2009, and am estimating that I will finish sometime in October 2010.

My route has taken me past sights of natural beauty, over rough tracks, near mayan ruins, and enabled me to meet hundreds of friendly people.

This is not my first trip, however. I have also cycled from England to South Africa, details of which are also at my site, which covers nearly 15 years of travel around the world.

Put the kettle on, make a nice cup of tea, sit down, and enjoy !!

Pedaling South from Alaska to Argentina
by Lucie and Torrey, tour started September 2009, submitted 26 August 2009
language: en, fr

We're cycling 25 000 km across the Americas from Alaska to Argentina to raise funds for Cyclo Nord Sud, a non-profit that sends used bicycles to developing countries. As ambassadors for this organization, we will meet with Cyclo Nord Sud's Latin American partners and hopefully create contacts with new ones along the way.

We're a francophone/anglophone couple from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. We're each adding original content in our respective languages, so our blog is a 2 for 1. Enjoy!

Nous traversons les Amériques dans un voyage autonome de 25000km en vélo, de l'Alaska à l'Argentine afin de ramasser des fonds pour Cyclo Nord-Sud, une organisation à but non-lucrative qui envoie des vélos usagés dans les pays en voie de développement. En tant qu'ambassadeur, nous visiterons leurs partenaires en Amérique latine et créerons de nouveaux contacts.

My pedalled globe tour (part 1): Las Americas
by Christian Bomio, tour started May 2007, submitted 24 July 2009

In May 2007 I've started a round-the-world bicycle tour. This is the first part of this journey which began in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska going south through Canada, USA, Mexico and Central America. After one year my wheels were in Colombia to begin riding around South America (Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina) in order to reached Ushuaia at the end of the world in Tierra del Fuego by end of 2009.

In Bolivia following the railway line sometimes is better then the dirt roads.

Spinning Southward - Alaska to Argentina for Brain Tumor Research
by Mike Logsdon, tour started July 2005, submitted 16 November 2006

In 2002, my brother Mike and I began to talk about an epic, tip to tail, bicycle trip spanning the length of the Americas. At the time, however, our geographic separation and respective professional endeavors would force us to shelve our dream ride and hope for more accommodating circumstances. Two years later, that opportunity presented itself in the fall of 2004 when our lives converged in the mountains of Colorado. Over the course of our stay in Colorado, my brother and I began laying the groundwork for a bicycle trip that would take us from the far northern shores of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina, the southern most city in the world. On July 26, 2005, having cleared all financial and logistical hurdles, we will start pedaling on the long road south.

The motivation for our trip is a reflection of our life-long ambitions - to explore new places, to make meaningful connections with other people and cultures, and to test the boundaries of our physical endurance and mental resolve. These ambitions are inspired by the enduring spirit of our late mother, Jean, herself an accomplished world traveler who always supported and encouraged our explorations of the world. We dedicate this trip to her memory.

In 1996, our mother Jean was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor that took her life in the winter of the same year. To honor our mother's lasting legacy and help those confronting the same illness that eventually took her life, Spinning Southward has partnered with Racing Ahead®, a program created by the National Brain Tumor Foundation that celebrates the passion of cyclists, runners and other athletes. NBTF is a non-profit organization dedicated to innovative brain tumor research and patient care. We are committed to raising both financial support and awareness for the NBTF through our nine-month, 15,000-mile ride across 13 countries. We hope that our ride will inspire you to join us in support of this worthy cause through a contribution to Jean's Journey.
