The route from the edge of the Arctic Circle to the most southerly city in the world is one that holds fond memories for Kevin & Julia at GlobeBusters – after all it was on that same journey in 2003 that they set one of their Guinness World Records.
Covering a total of 24,000 miles across 14 countries in just 140 days, it is one of the ultimate trips to put on the bucket list of any budding 2-wheel adventurer.
Next year the couple will once again be leading a group of riders from Alaska to Argentina, with some riders joining at various stages to complete one or more sections of the ride.
Starting in mid July of 2018, the team head up the Dalton Highway to Prudhoe Bay in the Arctic Circle before setting their sights to the south.
With endless vistas comprising of glaciers, snow capped peaks and more, this makes the ride to the Canada/US border one of the most stunning in the Northern Hemisphere.
After crossing The States, it’s time for Mexico and the Central Americas with their numerous colonial towns and Mayan ruins.
A sea crossing from Panama takes the team to Colombia, which is a whole trip within itself thanks to the stunning roads and mountains covered in lush green jungle.
Crossing the Equator in Ecuador, they then cross into Peru and Bolivia, where there will be an opportunity for riders to pit themselves against the infamous Death Road leading out of La Paz. After passing the Uyuni Salt Flats they arrive in Argentina for the first (but not the last) time.
The route down to Ushuaia via Patagonia crosses the Argentina/Chile border on several occasions, but eventually they reach the very tip of South America and the final spot of land before Antarctica.
If this wasn’t enough, there’s then a ride up to Buenos Aires and finally the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo where the bikes will be created and sent home.
As an official partner of Continental, the GlobeBusters team will chose the right tyre for their needs from our adventure range ahead of each trip, with the TKC 70 and TKC 80 proving very popular on the often dusty roads of Central and South America.
