The Late Ian Hibell: Ultimate Adventure Cyclist

Ian Hibell has become my new hero. I briefly came upon the legend of this man while doing research for my ride. Unfortunately his book, Into the Remote Places, is out of print and quite expensive to buy if you can find it. I now realize the Transamazonica was one of his many conquests back in the 70′s. One more addition to the TransAm club!

After the Boston Phoenix interviewed me about the trip and printed a write up of the adventure I was asked to attend a photo shoot for STUFF magazine out of boston.

The Boston Phoenix ran a column on page 6 this week briefly highlighting my trip. So far this is my first print article after many attempts at contacting various publications. There are a few statements that are off (for instance I biked east to west) but all in all its cool to see the story as a tangible entity in my hands. If you’re in the Boston area find a red Phoenix box and check it out.

This is a rough elevation profile from Puerto Maldonado, in South East Peru in the Amazon basin, to Nasca which is located on the coastal desert. The profile shows the rise into the Andes, the numerous ups and downs as I crossed hundreds of miles through the range, and the descent back to sea level around the city of Nasca.

Transamazonica... The Motion Picture?

Speilberg and the Coen Brothers haven’t come knocking quite yet but while on the trip I shot quite a bit of video and still photography that I wasn’t able to upload onto the website due to the impossibly slow connections. Now that I am back I’d like to use that choppy on-the-bike-video and remaining still photos to hopefully make a short film… with some help.
