Adventure Rider Christmas Party

A quick post mostly of photos about the ADV Rider Christmas party in Medellin. As much as I think this is an adventure unlike any other, the truth is many people have done similar trips, I’ve learned a lot from the ones who’ve traveled before me and have had great adventures with others who are currently riding as well. Word got out that Medellin was the place to be for Christmas. John Downs (JDowns) and Andrew Lord (AndrewUK) contacted Albert at the Shamrock Pub and he agreed to let us use his pub to host the Adventure Rider Christmas Party. All together I think we had 18 riders show up. Seven Canadians, a Mexican, six Americans, a Brit, an Aussie, and a Scott. It was a great night. Thank you JDowns for throwing this for everyone. Such a great Christmas gift for all of us. And thanks Albert at the Shamrock!
