Ep. 317: South America Bike Tour - Anna McNuff & Faye Shepherd - Part 1
In October 2016 Anna McNuff saddled up on a bike called Bernard and set off as part of a two-woman team on a mission to explore some of the most beautiful and remote areas of the Southern Andes.
Side by side, she and her friend Faye Shepherd spent 184 days pedaling their way 5,500 miles through Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. From the bustling city of La Paz, all the way down to Ushuaia – the last sizeable chunk of land before you reach Antarctica. Far from taking the shortest, most direct route, they sought the most mountainous course possible. By the time they returned to the UK in spring 2017 they had ascended over 100,000 metres – equivalent to 11 times the height of Everest – on their bicycles.
