Hey cyclistas! Question for anyone who's traveled South America -- I'm planning on riding around South America --Peru, maybe Bolivia (bikepacking the andes, salar de uyuni) from 9/20-12/20. I'm worried about being there during rainy season. To avoid the worst of the rain should I head south/inland/higher altitudes? Are there parts of S.America that are more recommended that time of year?
Also - what the best way to navigate - does everyone have gps devices? Where is a good place to get maps?
