Cycling from San Juan to Wild Camp in Argentina

As I cycled toward Mendoza in Argentina, I wrote a blog post a day. This travel blog covers the day's ride between San Juan and a wild camping spot.

Cycling out of San Juan, Argentina

Travel blog post written February 7th 2011

I left later today at 10.00, as I knew that I only had to do about 80 kms today, and I didn’t want to wild camp too early.

The exit out of San Juan was easy, but unfortunately was on a dual carriageway section. Not super busy, but certainly more traffic than I am accustomed to in these past few months.

Media Agua


A slight headwind to make things interesting, but overall not too bad. I stopped briefly in Media Agua to see if there was anywhere to stay, but nothing sprang out.

I carried on twenty or thirty kms more, and then set up behind a radio tower on the right hand side of the road.
