So my younger brother Walter has a thing last few years for
extreme personal challenge, well he always wa into sports but
this is something different. he had always been into sports
since we were little and he had endured multiple Iron man racers
but this is just something way in the left field.
As he is now living in New Zealand for about 8 years. Last year
(December 26, 2014) he had decided to bike his way around New
Zealand. Flying down to Christchurch and peddling his way down to south island and way back to
Auckland. I do must agree that was some bike adventure through
the New Zealand country side. It took him about a month
(180hr)to do the estimated 2900km trek. I'm sure he had planned
this much earlier to prepare and get ready, never the less that
was some achivement.
I had the pleasure of flying down the following month on my 50th
birthday and doing the route with him again but we did it in a 4
wheel means of transportation which is bit more comfortable and
much quicker.
This year (December 26, 2015) again, he had started on his much
more extreme trek ever, not sure what made him do it as it will
be near or in excess of 10,000km trip starting from the very
southern most city in Argentina, Chile, through Bolivia, parts of
Brazil, Peru and final destination in Colombia taking him
estimated 4 months. The mode of transportation is a brand new 2
whealer
bare
and loaded
