Here are the latest news from Bertrand, our bike traveller from South America.
Bertrand spent a few months at Bariloche, in Argentina.
Bariloche offers many different places to climb. Bertrand feels like he has found a local Annecy, a place where you can easily enjoy mountain activities and have a little beer at the end of the day :-).
During this break in the adventure, Bertrand had the opportunity to share his experience with 2 TV interviews, one for a local channel : Winter Channel and one for Fox Sport Channel Latino America that covers all of Latin America.
A local public school organized a meeting with their pupils to talk about travelling. Bertrand chose to talk about the protection of the environment, the importance of speaking different languages and the realization of one’s personal projects. He would be happy to meet French students when he gets back to France.
After this break, Bertrand finds himself alone on the road again, in the direction of El Chalten, further South, for about 1400km and a lot of steep hills.
“These 4 days in Argentina are beautiful. I cycle through the National park called Los Alerces. Luckily, there’s no rain on the way, which makes me appreciate even more the beauty of this place. People told me about the beauty of Paso Futaleufú, I wasn’t disappointed. The long valley goes through the mountains and gets smaller to become a river, the río Futaleufu.”
