South America Cycling

South America is hot-bed of cycling activity, from road to mountain bike XC, all the way through to freeride and street. We want to capture some of the spirit of cycling from this fantastic part of the world, and are busy lining up a great team to do so.

Whenever we take a look at what's happening via the internet, the sun seems to be shining and everyone is out and about in great places having fun. With vast areas of nature to explore, from desert type plains to jungle greenery, the Andes mountains and Patagonia, it has to be on every adventure seekers list of places to visit. 

To start things off, we've been lucky enough to be joined by Susan Barraza from Chile, who not only rides, but also works within the cycling industry. 

We're expanding our team into Colombia, to bring you some superb cycling articles and routes from one of the great cycling nations. Keep checking for new developments and blogs.
