Bike Touring Linden to Lethem

The 276-mile Linden-Lethem “trail” is considered to be one of the most legendary roads in South America. This dirt road is the only major overland route connecting the capital city of Georgetown in northern Guyana to the Brazilian border to the south. A great deal of the terrain along the route is classified as wilderness, so expect to see wildlife and to stock up on provisions in Georgetown, Linden, or Lethem because there are few shops scattered villages in the savannah section along the way. This route is not for the faint of heart and should only be traversed during the dry season. World Biking provides the Top 5 Reasons to Cycle Guyana as well as practical route information.
