Christi & Tauru

Christi and Tauru are currently (April 2012) riding in Chile, on their way to an 18-month journey across roughly 16,000 miles and 15 countries on a tandem bike from Argentina to Alaska.

Along the way they’ll stop at schools for the visually impaired to talk about their story in hopes to raise awareness. You see Christi is blind and Tauru is going blind. They hope to inspire others with disabilities that anything can be accomplished.

This isn’t the first time they’ve set out on a long adventure. In 2009 they completed a trip across the US.

Harriet & Neil Pike

“In 2008 we were coming to the end of a 2 year backpacking trip in Asia, and were tiring of that form of travel.”

“We’d met plenty of cycle tourists in the Stans the year before, had liked the idea and decided to try it out with a cycle home to Oxford from Istanbul. The freedom and joy at being outside all day soon had us hooked on two-wheeled travel, so we headed to South America the following year and spent 19 months cycling on that beautiful continent. Out there we soon discovered that our favourite rides were on quiet roads in the mountains, well away from traffic and the big cities.”

“Stories from our trips are at Pikes On Bikes  and we’ve set up Andes By Bike, which has route information and maps of many of the small routes we cycled in the Andes.”
