The US news media is reporting very little, if anything on Venezuela. Not surprising I guess. BBC has sporadic coverage of the situation. NTN24 seems to have quite a bit of coverage though.

Hoping to ride into Venezuela - any current reports out there?

Hoping to cross on bike in the next couple of weeks from Columbia at the northern border near Maicao and wondered how the situation in Venezuela is for traveling solo or two bike in the country right now. Thanks for any current reports.

It's mostly quieted down at the moment. Sporadic protests still rise up here and there.
I would avoid the larger cities.

Crossed into VZ on the Maicao (Colombia) crossing last week. The guy at the Aduana told us that we HAVE to cancel our bike permits or VZ won't let us in. So we did. We wanted to leave them running as we were coming back to COL in a week or so. The migracion asked us if we were sure we wanted to stamp out of Colombia as VZ might not let us in if we don't have a printed hotel reservation. Had to walk up to VZ border and ask if they will let us in. They said not without a hotel reservation. Back to COL and got online to book a hotel and print the reservation off. Stamped out then back to VZ. They also said we need a reservation for a hotel in an exit country to prove we'll be leaving ! A few bucks later we convinced them we didn't need this.
So, if you go this way, I wouldn't cancel the bike permit if you're going back to COL as nobody asked to see ours. Also have a printed hotel reservation for that night and maybe another one in the country you are exiting to. Just book them online, print it, then cancel it if you have no intention of staying there.
Obviously every border crossing is different so take from this what you will.

This is a requirement only for US, UK and Canadian citizens, and only at that border entry point !! don't ask me why.
(well I asked once and the guy told me that these countries were always trying to conspire against venezuela.)

Safe measures for sure. Canada is famous for its spies, sent all over to world to destabilize legitimate democracies.
