Extreme trips, 17.900km Transamazonica

Joe Pichler, the man who made this travel alone, in only 100 days, has a lot of previous experience in this kind of “bike trips”. The Transamazonica, one of the longest and hardest “roads” from the Atlantic Ocean to the Andes mountains, built by 11.000 workers starting at 1973, traverses Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia.
