I am going to ride the Americas from beginning August 2020 for about 2 years, going from Canada to Chile whilst being focused on dirt-road touring. Due to the lenght of my journey and the cold nights of the Andes I will not come in an GDMBR specific ultralight race style, my bike will be more 27.5+ long term offroad tank and so the weight and the travel speed will be.
The plan is to start in Calgary for the GDMBR. Once I entered the US my visa will last three months. I think up to 60 days may be good not to rush through the route and to have some time to rest and to do some touristic stuff. So, October will be to rest a bit and to get to the Mexican border near San Diego to start riding Mexico until the end of February/March via Baja Divide and Trans-Mexico-trail. After this I want to ride further south to explore the rest of central america and the andes until July 2022. Then I will take the plane to Australia to try to settle in Oz or NZ.
I am a 40y old German, unfortunately I do not speak spanish, so first thing I have to do in Mexico is a language course :)
If anybody wants to be a companion for a shorter or longer time and distance, please get in touch!
