We arrived in Ushuaia a week before our plane to Holland departs. So one week to spend in and around Ushuaia. We tried to organise a Warmshowers host to stay with for this last week but unfortunately non of the eight addresses we wrote too in Ushuaia did respond on our request or did host other cyclists already. But this is no wonder since Ushuaia is a popular city to start or end a long distance cycling trip.
We organise a cosy AirBnB address to stay with.
The week flies by fast. We take a lot of rest, we organise bike boxes to transport the bicycles in the airplane and we discover Ushuaia. Kim also updated her portfolio since she has to find a new job back home.
Around town there are some pretty spots to discover but we don’t visit the National Parks or Glaciers around Ushuaia. I think we have seen enough of Patagonia and besides, the place is also very touristic and therefore expensive. Why pay a lot of money for something we have seen already many times for free?
The flight back to Holland did start full of stress because Arjan had to cut off a pedal from his bicycle at the airport. The rest of the trip home goes smooth.
Some statistics from the last 1,5 year:
- In total we cycled 22.323 km.
- Our trip was 566 days of which we have cycled 337 days.
- We did spend 1.438 hours in the saddle.
- Our average speed was 15,52 km p/hour.
- Our average day distance was 66,24 km p/day
- Elevation gain 147.278 meters. (We cycled 16,64 times up the Mount Everest)
- Elevation loss 150.148 meters. (We downhilled 16,97 times Mount Everest)
- With the two of us we just had 29 flat tires.
When I'm on the bicycle
then I sometimes think
nothing is wrong with me.
But when I think
Then I think:
Don't think too much if you can
because you have to go even further.
