Our Bike Trip from Canada to Argentina
This website is the story of our two and a half year trip riding almost 14,000 miles by bicycle from the north of Canada to Argentina. We're Nancy Lewis and Randy Fay, and we were 51 when we started out in June, 2006. We sold nearly everything we owned -- including our house, car and furniture -- to pedal -- and sometimes push -- our bikes through 14 countries carrying everything we would need to be self-supporting.
Our once-in-a-lifetime experience started in Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada in June 2006 and ended in Puerto Montt, Chile in January 2009. The purpose of this trip was to get to know the people and their cultures in a more intimate way. We didn't set any records athletically or anything - people do this every year. But we met an enormous number of fabulous people and had some incredible experiences along the way.
We returned to the United States by plane in January 2009, and have settled back into a normal life in Palisade, Colorado.

Thanks to all of you in all those countries who made this such a wonderful experience!
