Local Host

Rodolfo Datsch.

Rodolfo Datsch is our local host. Rodolfo says: "I'm a person who loves to be on two wheels on unknown places, without any plans, meeting strange people, in general, a very normal traveller. I don't measure any efforts to help a fellow biker and I appreciate it when a traveller shows up at least for a drink in Iguazu."

Big thanks to Rodolfo for stepping up and making this event happen! We can always use help on the day - please volunteer to help out for a couple of hours when you signup (above)!
