2015-11-24 Santiago to Temuco


  • Distance: 681 km (423 miles)
  • Max Elevation: 837 m (2747 feet)
  • Min Elevation: 56 m (184 feet)
  • Ascent: 2268 m (7441 feet)
  • Descent: 3004 m (9857 feet)


Mostly just a ride to get to the start of the Austral and nothing special. Big highway with a dozen $1 tolls. Some beautiful scenery. Spots of torrential rain. Spots of high wind. 3 turns. An ambulance careened off the highway just before a bridge…looked pretty nasty…the emergency crews showed up so nothing for me to do. Bike repairs seemed to have gone well. Valve train sounds good and my two little oil leaks are fixed which makes my ocd happy. Found a hospadaje with a single room to stay in and a little covered area for the bike…it’s quite comfortable and the cheapest thing I could find although still expensive at $23.


  • Saying goodbye to my Chilean Abuela.

  • Even on a big modern highway theres a man and his horse.
