Machu Pichu, the alternate route, by Boyscout. Nobody is supposed to be able to ride to Machu Pichu (or Aguas Calientes), you're only supposed to be able to ride to Cuscu, and from there you're supposed to walk for 4 days, or take an expensive train. Nobody except Boyscout. (Brian and Marie also did it, and they were two-up! Mere mortals can't.)

Chickens hogs and other road hazards, by Boyscout. This should be included in any MSF course on Latin America.

South America Top 10 Rides, by Mickycito. Mickycito is the owner/operator of www.compassexpeditions.com. His "South America Top 10 Rides" is a must-read. Have a napkin ready because you're going to drool some more.

Today Barb sent me this link: http://www.thebigbiketrip.com/

Here's a sample:
...it took us 36 hours to get back to Uyuni and when we did we realised that we had been tricked by professionals, she had stolen almost all of our clothes, electronics, documents, cash, bike keys, talk about being kicked when already in need of help, we were just happy that we were safe as ultimately I think their plan was to use our bikes to smuggle drugs out of Bolivia. The challenge now was to simply get out of Bolivia as fast as we could south to Argentina.
