RawHyde’s Continental Divide Ride South America is a 2400 mile ride through 4 remarkably different countries which all share a single incredible geologic feature – The most influential mountain range in the world; - The Mighty Andes!
The Andes form the Continental Divide of South America, and in turn create two of the most extreme climates on earth. The Amazon River basin and jungle on the east side - and the Atacama Desert to the west. The Amazon is the largest river on earth… and the Atacama is the driest desert on earth… all created by the Continental Divide of South America.
