After 391 days and 14,556km on our beloved bicycles, we’ve been delayed mechanically by nothing more complicated or time-consuming than a puncture.

After six hours and 140km in a borrowed Volkswagen Polo, the only time on this trip we’ve been behind a steering wheel rather than handlebars, this happened:

A broken clutch, a truck-assisted U-turn back to Bogotá, and a reminder that two wheels and two pedals beat four wheels and three pedals any damn day of the week.
