About Us: "260litros" comes from a long friendship of two guys which decided in 2017 to leave everything behind and go in search of new adventures and experiences with their bikes. “When we started our trip we though about going from southern Patagonia to Peru in six months but as days passed we started to feel that this could be our way of living for the next years and decided to keep on going until Alaska, for the moment.” Nowadays after almost four years, 10 Andes crossing, 5 countries and more than 23000 kms we reached Ecuador and are excited to continue with new experiences throughout the following countries. We wanted to leave behind all routine. We wanted to stop saying: “one they we will...” We just did it. “Our goal is to reach Alaska and after traveling through several places around South America with incredible single track trails, lakes and rivers we though that it would be amazing to be able to combine both activities bikepacking and packrafting, that is why we recently changed our entire equipment for making it possible. We love adventure, remote and hard planning routes. All the americas are packed with lots of single track trails that go up in the mountains or deep in the jungle and lead to some river or lakes so we though, why not turning into bike-rafting?” We always dreamed with racing so this why we are now preparing ourselves to participate in the most known ultra-distance races around the world as soon as it is possible.
