Read about Doug's trip across the Transamazonican Highway...


"I was to bike the entire width of the Amazon Jungle across nearly 2,000 miles of dirt tracks, over the cold high passes of the Andes, and finally north through the barren coastal deserts to Lima, Peru over 3,000 miles away. The intention was to see firsthand the destruction of the Amazon, find the limits of my endurance, cross the continent via a rarely traversed route, and experience a piece of the world's greatest jungle before it disappeared."
