As the country begins to reopen, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.
Sacred Rides and GoPro Cameras are rewarding mountain bikers for their patience during snowy winter months with a free trip to Central or South America. Enter the Flip Winter the Bird sweepstakes to win one of the following mountain biking adventures:
Chile: Singletrack in the Andes and surfing in the Pacific Ocean
Mexico: Mountain biking and yoga on the Pacific Coast
Guatemala: Explore jungles, volcanoes and Mayan history
Argentina: Riding, rafting and yoga in Patagonia
Each trip comes with local guides, good meals and comfortable accommodations -- not to mention warm weather. "Our winter rides are all about getting out of the cold and 'flipping the bird' at winter," says Sacred Rides president Mike Brcic. "They offer riders the opportunity to stoke their mountain bike fire through those long, cold months of winter."
The contest is open until February 11, and the winner will be announced on February 12. Registration and details can be found on the Sacred Rides Web site.
