Between Jan 22nd and March 8th, 2020 Fort Collins Sofware Engineer Scott Ruff and his companion David Gast of Bend Oregon rode 1300 miles through Patagonia, from San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina to Punta Arenas, Chile.  David was on a Surly Disc Trucker, Scott was on a Niner Air 9 RDO and neither of them had a single flat tire during the trip. Before setting out on this adventure Scott completed the Colorado Trail, Baja Divide, and will be taking on a 400 Colorado gravel loop this summer. "We both love cycling and enjoyed it very much, but on this trip, a big part of the experience was meeting so many great people including locals and other travelers."

They were kind enough to film the adventure for us.
