New Caledonia - Posted On
Three months since we arrived push us to take on our bikes with the firm idea to go around this new country of ours. We start with cyclotouring the southern part of Caledonia, starting from Nouméa. Three days giving the opportunity to meet the tribe of Goro as well as the super-big-prototyp factory of the same name.
This last one is supposed to treat the nickel that is found in the ground of the island with a heating process using a very high quantity of electric energy, fossil based unfortunately. It gives so much wealth and work to the people that nobody cares much about the environmental impact.
We are surrounded by the typical “red dirt” of the south, giving an everlasting red aspect to all our gear by the time we go back.
