Lauren Hi Charlene, I just did Peru, Bolivia and Argentina at the end of last year. I would definitely recommend visiting Bolivia, it's my fave place and cheap too. Peru is perfect for some volunteering and practising your spanish.
Charlene
Charlene Hey Lauren. Thanks for the tips. I've heard a lot of good things about Bolivia.

Lauren Hi Jaime, are you riding one way or both? I see 2 routes on your map (one starting in Spain, the other in Portugal) is this the return ride or just different routes?
JaimeDominguez
JaimeDominguez Yes, the west side one is the way back. But really it is just a rough map I'm sure it will change once we are there, adapting it to something better...

Lauren I had planned on doing this a couple of years ago. Hiking, dining and swimming... what a nice holiday. Have fun!

Lauren Hey there, how's your trip going? Where are you now?
Lauren
Lauren A bike riders dream. The plan sounds awesome but I don't know how my bum would cope for 3 months! The adventure of it is tempting though as I haven't explored the US much :)
Lauren
Lauren Sounds like a great trip Normz. I just travelled through Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. My favourite was Bolivia, try to get into the San Pedro prison in La Paz. It's definitely a one-of-a-kind tour.

SP Doin a very similar trip at around the same time. I will be in Machu Picchu on May 21. First time in South America. Ping me, perhaps we can share our research/tips on Peru.

Todd If you plan to do the classic Inca Trail, you really need to book a few months ahead. Alternatively, there's the Lares Trek and others, which have fewer stairs and less traffic.

Robert Lo Bue
Robert Lo Bue Hey ! This is exactly what I want to do but I live in Europe and have done a lot of it. I think I'm going to start a small trip in San Francisco and LA in September. I will have a return ticket but it's more of a trial for me before a bigger trip hopefully in 2012 :)
Lauren
Lauren Hi Robert, good idea to test it out first before you plan a long trip. The lifestyle is not for everyone, it can be hard to motivate yourself when you're away from everything you know. And there's also the distraction of seeing/exploring a new city/country! Good luck.

Lauren Hi Lee, I've been to all 3 of these cities and enjoyed Paris the most. Barcelona and Amsterdam might be a good additions too
Lauren
