PERU ADVENTURE

 

PERU CYCLING - MOUNTAIN BIKING PERU

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

Part of the attraction to mountain biking through Peru is the opportunity to discover ancient Incan and pre-Incan trails, visit archeological sites and picturesque villages, as well as to ride through different ecological tiers in just a few hours. There is one route, starting in the town of Olleros, south of Lima, where you can descend 3,600 meters (11,808 feet) in a ride that is just 70 kilometers (113 miles) long.

Mountain biking is the fastest-growing sport in the country. Thousands of bikers year-round head out on their bicycles down canyons and up trails all over the country.

Practically the entire country, with the exception of the coastal desert and the Amazon plain, is apt for mountain biking. However, depending on the degree of difficulty and logistical needs, circuits are divided into three categories: A) Beginners: gently sloping routes, with tough, compact terrain; B) Experienced cyclists: circuits involving moderate slopes and a certain degree of risk for the cyclist; C) Experts only: steep slopes, high altitudes and uneven, scree-like terrain, with a high degree of risk. So get on your bike... and explore Peru .
