Cycling the Peru Divide with Pepper Cook: Val and Faith welcome guest Pepper Cook to the 3CR studio and we kick off the program by sharing our bike moments. We run through some local news including; Marianne Vos to visit Melbourne for the Giro Della Donna and Dirty Deeds CX and over forty oBikes retrieved from the Yarra in Melbourne.
We turn to Peru and Pepper’s spontaneous decision to take up the opportunity to spend five weeks riding the Peru Divide with Tumbleweed Bikes. Pepper talks about the challenges of bikepacking at altitude and with limited resources for water and food as well as the cultural and social interactions on the trip. You can check out photos from Pepper’s adventures on her Instagram account.
