Vuelta de Argentina

 A good, but hard day on the bike covering about 85 km around Bariloche and Parque Municipal Llao-Llao, mainly on the road. Mountain bikes are always good fun, but I am a roadie at heart and there were some amazing descents on route. The hire bike weighed half a ton, so hard work getting it up there, but you dropped like a stone on the other side. The ride out to the park did however make me realise why you see so few road cyclist in Argentina. I can only imagine the driving test in Argentina primarily involves handing over a wodge of cash in a brown paper bag, if the standard of driving is anything to go bye.

Tomorrow we are off to Pucon in Chile for some more adventure sports and a big New Year’s Eve party, should be fun.
