Biking in Bariloche

overcast 18 °C

So we had heard that Bariloche is quite popular for its 'Chico Circuit' which takes you all around the mountains, through llao llao forest, and past lots of lakes. So we decided to hire a bike and cycle the whole way. It was a lot of fun, although there was a lot of steep upward hills (probably equally as many downhill ones, but you tend to focus on your hardships) which made it pretty tiring. It was ok though cause I wa a lot faster than Sadie, so I got loads of breaks while I waited for her. About halfway along we did a bit of walking along a trail to a lake, that took us through these cool arches of bamboo which was cool.

The journey was very nice, did the whole 30km in about 5 hours, but we did stop off in places to chill, so wasnt too bad. We later read in lonely planet that the circuit can be cycled by "hardcore cyclists", which made us feel a bit better about being pansies about the uphill bits. The views at the top were well worth it though.

Another top day. Today we were too lazy to do the hike we had planned to do, so we went into town and got our bus tickets for tomorrow to El Bolson.
