Being able to cross or ford a river with your bicycle is a handy skill.
You just never know when heavy rains or seasonal floods will take out a stretch of road. Being confident enough to get across the water can save you a long detour. It can also be fun and add an extra sense of adventure to your trip.
Our most recent experience with crossing a washed out road was in Andalucia. We produced this video to show you how we crossed it.
