EVENT DATE Sep 18, 2016
Cycling across South America to help preserve one of the most fragile ecosystems.
But we need your help!
Who: Jake Wilcox & Amy Tunstall
"Two North American adventures will be taking to South America for a world first expedition across the Inter-Oceanic. 3 months. 2 Bikes. 1 goal"
The Inter-Oceanic is a highway that connects Brazil to Peru. Spanning over 5,500 km. It reaches coast to coast, connecting the two great Oceans. Through out the trip we will be working closely with villages and local communities, dealing with the issues of poverty and deforestation.
Both of us have done a number of expedition. People have gone out of their way for us. Now it is time for us to give back.
Expedition proposal: Ocean to Ocean across South America on the recently completed TransOceanic Highway that connects Peru & Brazil. We will cross high altitude mountains such as the Andes and ride through the humid jungles of the Amazon, along with everything in-between. It will be long, the road (although new) probably will not be in the best shape and it will be a test for the most hardened explorers.
Half of the money collected will be given to a Non-Profit Organization called The Rainforest Trust Fund. With the other half been given to communities we see fit along the way.
Our Goal $10,000.00.
