L.A. to Rio de Janeiro
Planning a trip to America, leaving next September, buying some trailie bike in the U.S. The idea would be to ride from California to Mexico, through Central America, then find some way to avoid Colombia (doesnt sound good at this time, anyway!), probably take a ferry from Panama to somewhere in S.America, the final destination would be Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
A very long and demanding trip of course, planning to spend at least 5-6 months on the road.
Anybody have any experiences from that area; any 1st hand information is welcome?? I´m especially interested in border crossings and the paperwork in general. Another big question mark is getting from Central to South America, any tips on how to manage that with a bike?
