Central and North Burnett Times - - LIFE -

BIKE Odyssey, a newly launched bi­cy­cle tour op­er­a­tor founded by Sam Wood, for­merly of Ride and Seek, has an­nounced a Chile and Ar­gentina tour trac­ing the foot­steps of Che Gue­vara.

The 29-day Che-Bar­iloche to Santiago tour cov­ers 2351km from Bar­iloche to Santiago and is sched­uled for Novem­ber 17 to De­cem­ber 18 next year.

It will be bro­ken into two 14-day stages, and prices start at $6486 a stage or $12,637 for the en­tire tour.

“While our cy­cling will be tem­pered by the need to ex­plore the pris­tine sur­round­ings, in the first week we will as­cend (and de­scend) the height of Mt Ever­est and in the sec­ond we will con­quer, in ver­ti­cal me­tres, the high­est peak of the An­des, Mt Aconcagua,” Wood said.

“Our daily rides will be but­tressed be­tween vol­ca­noes, lakes and ther­mal springs, cou­pled with the rocky coast­line and the de­lec­ta­ble de­lights of the re­gion’s finest wines.”

Ac­com­mo­da­tion will in­clude na­tional park lodges, de­signer ho­tels on the Pa­cific coast and winer­ies. Bike Odyssey spares no ex­pense on the cui­sine, ar­rang­ing din­ners at some of the finest restau­rants in the re­gion.
