Follow the bikers of Going South on their adventures though the Americas.
As we cycled out of Whitehorse and out of civilisation again two weeks ago, we knew that we had to cover another 400km going directly East before we could turn down onto the Cassiar Highway and start getting closer to Panama. The road was good however and the hills not too long or steep, so it was only to be expected that the rain should start falling halfway through the first day. Spirits still high from our last few days sitting in coffee shops and feeling a part of the modern world again, as we plodded on through what seemed to be interminable forest stretching out as far as we could see.
