In January 2016, Laura Bingham began an attempt to cycle across South America. Nothing out of the ordinary for a 23 year old looking for adventure except that she planned to do it without any money. With only the equipment she could fit in her panniers, she cycled 7,000 km from the Pacific coast of Ecuador through Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, and Argentina until reaching the Atlantic Ocean at Buenos Aires. She got a glimpse of life without financial security and learned that strangers aren’t always kind and welcoming. During her journey, Laura was raising money and awareness for Operation South America, a charity that looks after homeless or abused young women in Paraguay. You can learn more about Laura at her website Laura Bingham, welcome to The Pursuit Zone.
