Carretera Austral (Patagonia)
Silvia and Linda
“Cicliste per caso” in italian means “cyclists by chance”. We chose this name for us because we ended up on the Carretera Austral by chance, never having travelled on a bike for more than 3 days before this journey. We are not professional cyclists nor professional explorers, we are just two women that live in the city and use daily the bike to go to work, crazy in love with sport, outdoors adventures and travelling. When we heard about famous Carretera Austral we coluldn’t resist and we decided to go for it. We packed our hobo bikes with some used boxes and jumped on a plane to Puerto Montt. Having not too much time to cycle the whole 1.200 km of the Carretera Austral, we decided to go for the southern part of it, because it’s the wildest and most beautiful one.
