Day 1 "PACIFIC OCEAN"
Finally the day has arrived.
October 5 we left Viņa del Mar in a warm and sunny day.
We decided ro rode toward the south using the road alongside Pacific ocean. This way we were
able to visit some village next to the sea ( San Antonio, La Boca, Pichilemu )
The coastal roads was built through and along the coastal tange. Therefore it is up and down and very twisty .

Pictures in the next message.

Nice Ride
 
Hola y buena suerte! :ricky

Nice pics and introduction to your RR. The coast of Chile looks like a great place to ride. Keep the pics coming!

I am looking to rent a TransAlp in Buenos Aires and then ride to Bariloche. But with the recent eruption of the volcano nearby, those plans may have to change. Let us know how the volcano has affected the area of Neuquen.

HAVE A SAFE RIDE!!
