I want to share with all the community of MTBr this amazing XC trip in Peru. We have ridden on the main Inca Trail, the one that goes from Ecuador to Argentina, and also other Inca Trails like the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu (just a part of it), and other Inca Trails in Cuzco. All the tour is totally legal, we didn't violate any laws or something like that. By the other way we helped poor people on our way and they recieved us with their arms wide open, giving us on the mountains some potatoes, cheese, chicha de jora and a very hard alcoholic beverage called cañazo.

We were a group of six riders: one from Chile, two from Canada, one from USA and two excellent guides from Peru. For all of us it was the best mountain bike trip of all our lives.

We started our 10 day tour in the city of Andahuaylas, crossing the landing track of the airport on our bikes! All the rides were on amazing singletracks and most of them going downhill. That was very good because the altitude makes very hard for a climbing tour. We had amazing days in Peru, having in some cases trails with more than 1,500 meters of vertical descends.

Along the Inca Trails, we found many of Inca sites, all of them amazing by its peculiar architecture and the unthinkable location.

The trails were amazing too. I think that the Incas made these trails thinking in the future and in mountain biking, eventhough they didn't knew the wheel. I think that I can be writting for hours and never finish describing the amazing of this trip, so I prefer to post some pictures of my trip. The complete photo album is on: https://community.webshots.com/user/XCTripPeru but I want to finish with some good pics of the trip.

If anyone wants more information about this tour please contact me: [email protected] and I will make it a real adventure for you.

Well, I'm the owner of this Mountain Bike and Adventure Tour Operator.
Huaraz is other location that we offer too, but I think this tour is the best for tourists because it involves Cuzco and Machu Picchu.
We rent bikes for this type of tours and also for the DH tours, but most of our clients brings their own bikes.
If you are planning a MTB trip, I suggest to select Peru, the pics shows it all, and we are professional guys in the business.
Cheers!

Cool. I'm putting this trip on my list of things to do before I get too old. How much a trip like that cost?

Wow!!!!

Nice shots! That's a really nice trip. Must do with my buds but most of them are starting families so I guess it'll be up to us single guys left to carry the torch.

BTW, the red Can-o-Ale looks like it's been through a few wars. Yikes!
