I look forward to my yearly pre-ride of the Carretera Austral to see how the roads fared over winter, to talk with the lodge owners we visit every year and to see how they have been over the long winter and now, due to Covid-19, an even longer off season. Here in Patagonia we all rely on each other to make our rides possible.
I imagine empty roads and locals looking forward to seeing new travelers. Once we do get back to an open border and an easier way of moving around, I hope to see everyone start to relax and get back to enjoying life and exploring these areas with a new found appreciation for the freedom that is Travel. I think we are all waiting and wanting to travel again, to get out and see something new… Once that is possible, I think the tourism industry will have a gradual restart, but I hope that adventure travel once again becomes a priority.
This has been a winter of firsts for Moto Patagonia. We are trying to expand slowly, but with optimism, for next year and the year after that. Riding motorcycles is a way of life for us. We hope to see new riders and returning riders once again enjoying what Patagonia has to offer.
