A typical set up for Ollie on his ride
Total raised so far: £700
As if cycling 6720 miles on his own and unsupported wasn’t enough of a challenge, Ollie will need to conquer fifty mile constant ascents at altitudes as high as 4000m, as well as navigate a 350 mile ‘detour’ around a desert standing in his way. Then there’s the risk of tropical disease, camping out alone and the haphazard drivers of the south american roads to contend with.
As a qualified summer and winter mountain leader, as well as a keen climber, Ollie is no stranger to the outdoors. However, he most certainly is a stranger to being on long bike rides having only completed one long distance (100mile) bike ride before.
This most certainly hasn’t dampened his enthusiasm as he embarks on this adventure of a life time. Himalayan Peoples Project - Nepal are extremely humbled to be Ollie’s charity of choice to receive the sponsorship he raises for this challenge.

Ollie Halford Guerra who grew up in Winchester, UK has started the greatest challenge of his life, cycling the length of South America from the southern tip of Chile to the northern tip of Colombia.
It sounds massive and it absolutely is. Ollie is cycling solo and unsupported for an incredible 6720 miles, attempting to cover 70 miles a day for five day stints followed by a day’s rest. This will be repeated four times before taking five days 'rest' to explore the area and perhaps climb a mountain or two!
