While doing my Bike Repair course last year I remember meeting a girl in the course who was also into bicycle touring and I just reconnected with her via Facebook/email to touch base since she didn't finish the course. She and her boyfriend are leaving on April 24 to a bike journey across the Americas, from Alaska to Argentina. Way to go Ali!
I guess this trip should take them about a year and a half and I admire them for the courage and initiative of leaving everything behind to go live on the road for that long.
If you want to follow her adventures just go to this link and show them some support: http://www.cyclingtheamericas.com/
Safe travels Ali and all the best to you guys!
