I am writing to you from an Andean village nestled between two volcanoes, after having completed a remarkable ten day scouting trip adventure that took me from a small isolated village in the Ecuadorian Andes, down into the vibrant beauty of the Amazon rainforest.
We are very excited to announce a new ride/travel experience scheduled this August that will have us ride through the stunning paramo to the remote kichua village of Pinan located on an Andean plateau. From there we will journey into the Amazon Rainforest to spend time with an indigenous tribe.
Working in conjunction with the Ecuadorian Red Cross we will perform a two day medical camp, offering gynecology, dentistry and CPR/Emergency Medical Training to the village of Piņan, which is so remote it only receives one day of general medical care a year from the government. In addition, we are also designing an educational program that will support the students of the village school.
After our visit in Piņan, we will ride down the mountain and then travel to the Amazon, where we will spend five days with the Sapara people, an indigenous tribe renowned for their encyclopedic plant knowledge and healing abilities. Our five day immersion into the Amazon will give us the opportunity to canoe down the headwaters of the Amazon, and walk through the jungle with the Sāpara tribe, gaining first hand knowledge of the importance and value of the Amazon rainforest. In addition, we plan to perform a medical camp offering dentistry and gynecology, as well as a clean water project for the Sāpara school.
The ride/ trip will be-scheduled from July 31st to August 12th starting from Quito, Ecuador.
We look forward to sharing more details with you shortly so please save the date for this remarkable adventure and let us know if you are interested in joining us.
