Yes I do. My grandmom is from Nicrojua, I can't spell it, and I thought it would be cool to go see her.

Re: Central America ride?

ok, just making sure, i think that would be cool too, just not sure how practical it is, riding your bike thru all those countries, could be dangerous

Check out ADVrider.com. Loads of ride reports on Central America.Set aside an hour or so, it's addictive.

Money can't buy happiness, but it sure as hell can buy horsepower.

Re: Central America ride?

riding to nicaragua wouldnt be that bad. the pan-american highway will take you there.

if you want to continue into south america though... you have to contend with the darien gap. the road stops in panama, and it starts up 100 miles later in colombia.

A guy I know rode his bicycle from CT to Brazil. He was trying to get to cape horn, but got hit by a truck in Rio.

Re: Central America ride?

There's a book by paddy Tyson called "the hunt for puerto del falgioli" or something like that... Great read (and part of his trip was through there)
