This is a first account from the road of the beginning of our TAMARBIKES Patagonia Adventure
Osorno to Bariloche
We started our first riding day by heading for the Argentinian border on our way to Barilolche. The Bikes are perfect and we are off to a great beginning. The run to the border is a delight the weather is a perfect 20 degrees spring is in the air and Chile has dressed up for us.
The border is also a moderate Pass with views of surrounding volcanoes and the first meeting with the Andes. Surprisingly they are not very high at this point and we are rolling down and skimming the Nahuel Huapi lake right round till we enter Bariloche on the other shore.
Beers, dinner, some laughs and drinks with the guys and we are off to rest as there is a long day tomorrow.
Bariloche to Futalefu
Day 3 of the tour and its off to Futalefu a charming Chilean village just across from Argentina. We begin teh day with a loop round some of the most amazing scenery once can imagine. lakes, snow caped mountains, and nature blooming in all its glory leave us all with our jaws dragging on the asphalt.
And were off. its a beautiful and relaxing ride till we hit the turn of Routa 40 where we hit gravel for the first time on our climb back to Chile and our final destination Futalefu.
