Forget About Carbon Fiber!
Dario, a Colombian native, has bicycle toured for about three years on his light, mean machine, complete with a four burner electric stove, a beer crate full of belongings and a bulletin board of newspaper articles tacked on the back. Each place he goes, he works in painting or repairing shoes to pay his way to the next place. 'It's the best way to see the country,' he said.
Dario's spent three years traveling and pedaled to Brazil and plans to go to Ecuador.
