Know Dreams: the Bike Trip of Our Dreams
Hear how this Bend couple biked from Alaska to Argentina
Bend-based husband and wife Ville and Kristen Jokinen completed a bicycle journey lasting 20 months and over 18,215 miles. They flew with bikes up to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska (the northernmost point of the Americas with a road) June 25, 2016 and rode into Bahia Lapataia, Argentina (the very end of the road) Feb. 17, 2018. They dealt with everything from close encounters with bears, dog attacks, a bought with dengue fever, and more wild adventures! They biked from 300 ft up to over 16,000 ft crossing the Andes 6 times in Peru alone. And now they are back, ready to share their stories and harrowing tales.
Please join us Saturday, September 29th at the downtown Deschutes Public Library in the Brooks Room, show at 1 pm sharp. Hope to see you all there!
