A Travelogue

Ewan Craig - Solo Cycle Tour Through South America

Mon., Dec. 11 - 7:00 p.m. - The Deep River Library

This one-hour photo presentation will provide a window into Ewan’s 6.5-month adventure.

The 15,000 km journey began in October 2022 in the city of Cartagena, on the northern coast of Colombia. Over the next few months, Ewan pedalled through Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, and Chile. In April he completed his trip near Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. During this voyage, he experienced incredible landscapes and climates, ranging from the humid Amazon rainforest to the deserts of Peru, to the windswept plains of Patagonia. Crossing the Andes, seeing the Nazca lines and summiting a 6080 m mountain were just three of many highlights during this experience of danger, excitement and friendship.

The presentation is free of charge but donations to the North Renfrew Long Term Care Center would be much appreciated.


Co-sponsored by the Deep River Library. As always there will be tea and coffee to enjoy.
