Ha! Well, I did say anything goes didn’t I? This is something completely different and there’s so much I have to tell you, as I’m tapping out these words I’m wondering where to begin and end!
Let’s start with Lois. Lois Pryce I mean. I wonder how many motorcyclists haven’t heard of Lois, her two fantastic books and her involvement with the Adventure Travel Film festivals.
But before I go any further, I must tell you that I’ve had the offer through from Compass Expeditions that readers of my website can get a huge £500 discount on a really rather special adventure. A women only tour through Brazil with Lois leading! The 1460 miles ride is on BMW F650GS and its suitable for both off road novices and two-up riding.
What an amazing country to ride through. Talk about cultural differences and eye-opening scenery! And what a person to be riding with – Cosmopolitan said this: ‘Lois Pryce knows what it takes to be a fun, fearless female. She rode solo from London to Cape Town, with the barest of essentials’
And from a more personal point, she’s full of surprises and one of the most genuine characters you could wish to meet. No doubt, with a grin, Lois coined the adventure as, ‘The Ultimate Brazilian’. The 14 day tour still has some spaces left. Check out the links below to see what’s still available – you’ve still time to get organised.
These links will take you to more info on the trip, and on Lois herself – be prepared to be surprised.

A taste of what you’ll find on the links:
Experience some of the best that Brazil has to offer starting in the magnificent Rio do Janeiro, with its spectacular beaches, world famous scenery and vibrant nightlife. We then transfer to our ride base in Penedo and begin the motorcycle tour, riding south and along one of the world’s most scenic coastal rides, the Costa Verde. We will visit wonderful colonial towns, enjoy chilled coconuts on the beach, dine in seafood restaurants and spend a day out, sailing amongst the islands and bays that dot this magnificent coastline. Turning inland we will visit the Germanic village of Blumenau and ride the amazing Serra do Rio do Rastro before visiting Brazil’s highest city of Sao Joaquim. You will see the plume of mist long before you see the 275 separate falls that make up the greatest waterfalls on earth, Foz do Iguazu. We catch a jet boat to the face of the falls and wander the dramatic walkways around them. A fitting way to end this exciting motorcycle ride of Brazil.
Don’t forget that discount offer. £500? Pretty good eh. If you aren’t a Pound Sterling type, the offer is available in US dollars too. Oh, and am I getting anything out of posting this as an Anything Goes? Not a bean, but real pleasure at being able to tell you about the trip. Tell ‘em where you heard the news when you book, to get that discount!
