The Patagonia Experience: Touring Chile and Argentina with RIDE Adventures

The Cuernos del Paine glow like beacons in the morning sun. The weather is fickle, though—clouds were already gathering as we motored off for our last day of riding.

The Cuernos del Paine stop us in our tracks. One rider after another pulls over to gaze at the chiseled peaks jutting up like deformed teeth in a Tolkien monster’s mouth. Gliding into the scene on motorcycles only enhances the experience. We slalom down a canyon road that reveals new vistas at each... Read more »

Riding Adventure in Costa Rica and Nicaragua with Edelweiss Bike Travel

Though the crater looks quite peaceful, the Irazú Volcano is still listed as active; the last time it belched massive quantities of fire, lava and rock was a mere 50 years ago, so I kept the ignition key in my hand.

At 11 a.m. we were parked 10,000 feet up at a small restaurant on the two-lane Pan-American Highway, sipping excellent coffee and putting on an extra layer of clothing in the cool air. Hummingbirds hummed around the feeders outside the view window. We had just passed the cloud-shrouded 11,450-foot Cerro... Read more »

Adriatic Moto Tours: Part 4

Wenceslas Square in Prague

Our Adriatic Moto Tours Eastern Europe adventure has now lasted two weeks, and I’m sad that it will end with our ride today. When I last checked in, I reported that our group of 14 riders (with two riding guides and the van driver) was on its way to Prague, and it truly was a magical city. Shortly... Read more »

Adriatic Moto Tours: Part 3

As we dined in at the hotel dining room, we were treated to a troupe of dancers: two men on clarinet and accordion, with two couples in a frenzy of local traditional dance. For 20 minutes they entertained us with leaps and whirls and the intricacy of their moves.

Our Czech/Hungary tour has now taken our group of 14 from Budapest to the High Tatras in the north of Slovakia, then for a couple days in Krakow, Poland. Budapest was a real treat, and now in the Tatras we again rode into mountains. The town of Stary Smokovec, where we stayed one night, is a ski resort... Read more »

Adriatic Moto Tours: Part 1—Loose in the East

We rode from Ljubljana, Slovenia, to Graz, Austria, and had lunch at a restaurant overlooking this castle and a twisty road.

I am currently starting Day 5 of a 14-day Czech-Hungary tour with Adriatic Moto Tours. This company, based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, offers several tours that mostly cover Eastern Europe, the part that most Americans leave for later after first exploring the Alps and western countries. The company sent... Read more »

Southern Loop: Eldorado by Eldorado

One of the most memorable roads on the trip was this one from Uyuni in Bolivia, heading westward through the mountains into Chile.

Would you set out for South America on a bike you bought last week, from someone in another country? We’re pretty sure what the answer to that one would be…for most people. Bruce Baillie isn’t most people. Bruce has covered much of the globe in his freewheeling blue-collar career, and has taken... Read more »

El Tanque: A Russian Conquest of Latin America

Having recently left Bolivia and entered Chile, I was astonished by even more incredible snowcapped volcanoes and breathtaking vistas that had me constantly stopping in admiration. In this region of South America, many of these high-altitude alkaline or saline lakes host flocks of Andean Flamingos. For another two days, I was able to enjoy this barren paradise before making my way to Antofagasta along the coast of Northern Chile, where I managed to catch the Dakar Rally.

I looked at the steep slope in front of me, littered with large boulders, deep ruts and debris, and wondered how I’d gotten myself into such a mess. I had already walked up the trail to check if my big Ural would make it around one particularly large boulder in the center of the narrow path. It was... Read more »

Riding Sardinia and Corsica with IMTBike

This is the little port of Castelsardo on the north coast of Sardinia, crowned with the traditional castle, built in the late 1200s; that was Homeland Security, 13th century-style.

It was our second morning in Sardinia. After a bountiful breakfast we were riding along 30 miles of coast road that could cause California’s Big Sur Highway 1 to look a bit boring. A couple of hours later found us in the Gennargentu Mountains, where the well-paved byways, twisting and turning like... Read more »

Edelweiss Bike Travel Touring Center Alps

The well-known road up to the Queen of the Alps, 9,045-foot Stelvio Pass in Italy, the second highest paved pass in the range. Note the traffic jam where an RV and several cars are trying to negotiate the same switchback.

The Bucket List is a funny, heartstring-pulling movie about two terminally ill men who complete a wish list of experiences before they kick the bucket. They skydive, race classic cars, go on a safari and ride a motorcycle atop the Great Wall of China. Since the movie came out in 2007, “bucket list”... Read more »

Dreaming of Africa: Ayres African Southern Cross Adventure

Awed by an abyss from atop Swartberg Pass.

It was pitch dark, and the air buzzed with strange insect sounds and animal calls over the quiet ticking of the Land Cruiser’s cooling exhaust. Moments before, our ranger/guide Lyle had killed the Toyota’s engine and headlights on this lonely road in Kruger National Park in order to point out the... Read more »
