Hi, I am Ronda, one half of Mr. I have been a potter for forty years.
Traveling to different countries gives me an intimate connection with the local culture. Pre-Columbian pottery of South America is amazing, detailing the life style and skill of the indigenous people before the Spanish invasion. Tim and I have traveled with TDA on four of the original excursion. I liken the experience to being a kid at camp: all of the adventure and fun with little of the work or management. Perfect, if we could just find someone to pitch the tents. Rider Lima to Cusco. I'm 55 and I feel lucky to ride the Silk Route.

Rider Quito to Lima. Looking forward to meet you on the next tour with TDA. I am reasonably active enjoying outdoor activities, ocean swimming, windsurfing, snowboarding and of course riding.
I ride a hard tail mountain bike in preference to a standard road bike even when commuting, makes me work harder chasing guys on road bikes. Getting into single track riding, enjoy the physical and mental challenges. The longest bike trip I have done was in when we completed the 'Traverse of Costa Rica", which was the inspiration to take part in the Epic South America Trip.
How do you compare to a Tour de France cyclist's fitness levels?
I have worked as a Surveyor for about 40 years on land and sea, remote areas to urban centres. Have travelled, worked and lived in a number of different countries including Southern Africa, Guatemala, Venezuela, Qatar, Mauritania and of course Australia. What have I signed up for!!!
I must admit my main sporting passion is ocean swimming, it doesn't sound like there'll be much of that on offer! Not too sure how this long distance cycle touring will go, however, always looking for the next challenge, so will give it my best shot. At least it's heading south - that is downhill - isn't it? Chao Chicos, nos vamos en Julio. Rider Cusco to La Paz. I'm 27 and from the U. This will be my first Tour and am very excited! No idea what I am letting myself in for - but that's all part of the fun right?!

Live in Toronto - love being on the bike. Looking forward to the ride. Rider Quito to Cusco. I'm a retired Forester and who enjoys getting outside and being active. I'm not a speedy cyclist but do try to finish the day. What better way to see a new country than from a cycle seat.
This will be my second tour with TDA. Rider Quito to Ushuaia.
After 10 years of working I am looking forward to a well deserved Sabbatical and this amazing trip through Southamerica. Cant wait! This will be my 5th tda trip.
