MISSRIDER Conquers Central America

My 15,000 mile/24,140 km ride to Central America was full of excitement and hardship. From the accidents to the good times, it was an amazing trip overall. Along the way I encountered bugs, cows, monkeys, machetes, donkeys, volcanoes, coconuts, mountains and much more. It was a hell of a ride from Boston Massachusetts to the Panama Canal and back alone in 60 days. Some people call it the ride of a lifetime. I call it just another ride in Madeleine’s life.
