Harriet and Neil Pike are a couple I’d categorize as extreme cyclists. People who search out remote places and high passes always on the lookout for spots rarely explored by two-wheeled travelers.
Between 2009 and 2011 Neil and Harriet cycled 21,000 kilometers in South America–almost half the distance on unpaved roads.
During their time cycling in Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and Peru they conquered 58 passes over 4,000 meters.
