What goes up, must come down! Mark Beaumont and James Lowsley-Williams are battling crushing altitude and strong winds to hike their bikes to the peak of the world's highest active volcano, the Ojos del Salado. But this is just the start of their mammoth Chilean challenge! They must also descend 6890 metres over 300 kilometres to the Pacific Ocean in order to ride the world's longest downhill.
To add some cycling spice to your holiday season we’ve hand-picked Colombia: An Andes Adventure and Chile: The Longest Descent Pt.1, from the GCN+ documentaries library and which we'll be streaming – for free – right here for Chile or for Colombia go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0s3GSm25Us
