Salar de Uyuni & bicycle by Syd Winer

Mmmmmmm, salt…..
High in the Andes Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni is one of the more surreal cycling experiences. There’s about 5000 square kilometers of this stuff. The only regret I have about this 1997/8 cycle tour was that I didn’t try to ride clean across it – a two day effort by all accounts. Maybe next time.
