Good luck to the gals and guys who are gearing up to participate in the world's longest organized bike tour ever!

Starting in Rio de Janeiro on 26th July, 23 riders from 8 countries will participate in the inaugural 12 000 km Vuelta Sudamericana tour.

They'll travel through Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia, Peru and and finish four months later, on December 6th, in Quito, Ecuador.

The tour features 110 cycling days, averaging 110 km each day, as well as 24 rest days in some pretty spectacular places along the way.
