The Man Who Cycled the Americas

The Man Who Cycled the Americas: Central America airs Saturday 2 December 2023 on BBC Four.

What is this episode about

Northern Mexico is infamous for kidnappings and murders linked to narcotics, and Mark ventures into this area. A photojournalist from his hometown, Juarez, shows him around what is arguably the most dangerous city in the world.

Mark finally reaches the Central Plateau town of Zacatecas, Mexico, after 98 days of solo travel. The town dates back to the 16th century. His arrival coincides with the tequila-fueled Mexican Independence Day festivities.

Arriving at the Pacific after overcoming the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains, Mark finds that this stunning backdrop is not without its shadow. In the middle of nowhere, he sees some murals of the Deadly Reaper and a makeshift temple. Even though the Catholic Church has condemned the locals who worship La Santa Muerte—the holy death—here, drug gangs have taken him up on his offer of salvation. As Mark continues through El Salvador and Guatemala, he enters the rainy season, which brings with it thunderstorms and what appears to be an impasse in El Salvador.

He quickly contacts the authorities and then races through Honduras on the back of a truck, despite the fact that the country is under military lockdown and the ferry to Panama has gone down.

While in Panama, his bike breaks down in the middle of a downpour. Luckily, he finds a street vendor who takes pity on him and fixes his bike using a hammer and a carving knife.
