There is a community in Peru of bikers that specializes in the organization of biking tours along the whole Peruvian territory. The trips can last a few hours to days, weeks, and even months. The levels of expertise can range from beginners to people with an advance level that are willing to explore the coast, the Andes, and the jungle with the challenges that each one of these regions apply. As a matter of fact, there are places in these tours where the distances can go up to 4000 meters above the sea level.
Among the beginners, the trips include the Lima City Bike tour that can last between 3 and 4 hours, as well as other trips like the Pachacamac, Paracas-Tambo Colorado, and the Cusco City Bike tour.
On the second level of trips or moderate degree of difficulty, there are tours like a full day in Caral, or 2 days- 1 night on this destination. The sacred Valley Tour is also a full day and it covers the Nazca lines and Paracas. Last but not least, there is an additional tour for couples called Romantic Biking weekend, which is based on 3 days- 2 night, and includes locations such as Lunahuaná, Cerro Azul, Mala and Playa El Silencio in Punta Hermosa. All of these sites are located nearby Lima and enhance the curiosity to explore new places with that special person, as well as sharing the passion for biking activities.
The third level in this discipline is called adventure, and includes a full day in destinations such as Lunahuaná, Lares – Downhill, or even a Trans – Desert of 300 kms south of Lima, which on average it usually covers only 40km. The Trans-desert program is also available with overnight in the city.
In Cusco there is another tour with itineraries of 3, 4 and 5 days, which covers 75, 100, and 150 km respectively. The bikers who engage in this program, need to be in good shape, considering the different kind of elevations that are displayed on the path that range between 2800 to 4450 meters above the sea level.
There are 2 additional levels that related to exploration and discovery. They are designed for people who take the subject of cycling very professionally and manage certain skills, as well as require expressively a higher degree of difficulty. These trips are prepared in advance after having a conversation with the client, as well as, a previous assessment on the paths that the biker wants to cycling.
In conclusion, if the adventure spirit is one of the qualities of your personality, then it is suggested to engage in these activities in an friendly environmental and ecological way, as well as with the opportunity to reach places that are not usually covered by a traditional tour.
