For once, the headwinds were the lesser of two evils as it was the sand which literally stopped us dead in our tracks. After cycling the first of two salt flats, we headed along a forty kilometer very rural road where we didn’t see a single car all day.
Then, after a grueling day, we finally made it to the second Salar. We were completely alone all day as there are no jeep tours who come through this region. I didn’t even know this Salar existed before talking with other cyclists so it was a pleasure to cross this beautiful gem. This Salar didn’t have hexagons like the other one.
Pikes on Bikes technical details for this route: This route took place along the yellow line, through the second salar. We used our Garmin trekking GPS along with the Pikes GPS coordinates in order to find our way across.
