This is my first trip to South America, and the longest bicycle ride I have ever taken, approximately 2500km (1500 miles) and two months. I am starting in Temuco, about 675km (420 miles) south of Santiago. I had intended to avoid Santiago and all its smog, but will be stopping there on the way back to give a seminar at the Universidad de Chile.
Each section of my trip is accessible from the links below. In addition, It can be read in order by following the links to the Next Section at the end of the current one.
