"...one of the longest, most balls-out-fun downhill trails I have ever had the privilege of riding." Dan Barham, Bike Magazine

Why do we require an application?

Our application process is in response to two of the most common questions our Riders have prior to booking a trip with us:

1) Am I skilled/fit enough to participate in this Ride?
2) Will the other people on my Ride be skilled/fit enough?

Ensuring that you - and the other Riders on your Ride - are a good fit for the Ride selected is of paramount importance to us. We want to help you pick the Ride that's perfect for you, and ensure that everyone booked on a Ride is on the right Ride for them. That's why we want to know a bit more about you - your mountain biking history, where you ride, how often, etc... - before we take your money.

We review every application and if, based on your responses, we think you're a good fit, we'll approve your application and you'll receive a link to place a deposit. If we think you might not be a good fit (either too skilled or not skilled enough for the Ride you chose), then we'll give you a call to discuss your preferences in greater detail.

Please note: our application process isn't about excluding anyone, or making anyone feel like they're not 'good enough' to participate in one of our Rides. It's about ensuring that you end up on the right Ride for you, with people of similar skill, fitness and riding preferences. In the end this ends up being a much better experience for everyone.

Were the Incas mountain bikers? Judging by the massive network of trails and roads they built all over Peru (some 10,000 km by some estimates) at the peak of their empire, modern-day archaelogists could be mistaken for thinking they were.

Just one ride on the incredible Olleros trail - the world's longest downhill, dropping from over 11,000 ft all the way down to the ocean over 36 mi/58 km, and you'll be in awe of the Incas' trailbuilding genius.

 

On this Ride, we'll explore South America's best singletrack, get a taste of Inca history in places like Cusco and Ollantaytambo, and revel in the majesty of the world's 2nd-biggest mountain range. Your local guides are passionate about showing you the beauty of their country, and will give you a rich, fulfilling experience that goes well beyond an amazing mountain bike trip.

IS THIS RIDE FOR YOU?

You can handle very rocky terrain and narrow trails, and have excellent bike handling skills. You're comfortable and confident riding all-mountain trails (steep climbs and long, technical descents). You don't mind the odd long day if it gets you to a spectacular and remote place that few other visitors will see. You're not afraid to get out of your comfort zone and experience a totally different and fascinating culture. You're up for trying new things, like roasted guinea pig or volunteering at a remote Quechua community.

Day 1. Arrive in Lima

Upon your arrival, you'll be greeted with a big smile by your Sacred Rides driver, who'll take you to your hotel in Miraflores. You'll get settled in, explore your new surroundings and get a taste of Lima's delicious cuisine.

Day 2. Pachacamac - skills training

A large Inca fortress with impressive construction dominates the entire Lurin Valley at this important Inca archaeological site. We'll have the opportunity to discover hidden Inca constructions deep inside the valley and the mountains.

We'll recover from our long flights this morning and build our bikes back up. We'll have our safety chat and talk about the afternoon ride and what to expect. After having lunch in Lima, we will be transferred to Pachacamac, 45km. south of Lima where we will ride one of the best trails in the area. 

 
Total km of riding: 32 | Elevation gain: 350m | Elevation loss: 350m | Highest altitude: 500m

Day 3. Olleros Epic Downhill

Santo Domingo de los Olleros, or simply 'Olleros', is located 150km east of Lima on the Lurin Valley and sits at an altitude of 3,150 masl. (10,356 ft.). The start of this trail is located at an altitude of 3,450 mals. (11,319 ft.) and 4 hours away from Lima. The trail is 54km long and is Peru's most famous mountain bike trail.
 
From the start of the trail, on a bright clear day, it's possible to see the Pacific Ocean, which happens to be where we'll end our ride. It's 3,500 meters of epic, drool-inducing, bike-orgasmic vertical awesomeness. Once in San Bartolo beach, we'll wash off dirt and grime and enjoy relaxing views of the Pacific Ocean. We'll then head back to Lima for dinner.
 
Total km of riding: 54 | Elevation gain: 100m | Elevation loss: 3,400m | Highest altitude: 3,450m

Day 4. Transfer to Cusco

We'll take an early morning flight over to Cusco. The rest of the morning is free to check in, explore Cusco, and build our bikes for the spectacular ride that awaits.

After a local lunch near the main plaza, we'll start riding from our hotel to the upper part of the city. We'll pass through main Inca sites and have a great introduction ride in Cusco. Once we are on top of the city, we'll ride down an Inca trail with a few surprises thrown in. We'll end our ride at our hotel and have the rest of the day to learn a little bit more about the city of Cusco. We'll ride approximately 10km in 2 hours. 

 
Total km of riding: 10 | Elevation gain: 300m | Elevation loss: 300m | Highest altitude: 3700m

Day 5. The Incas' Backyard Trail

Early in the morning, after breakfast, we'll be transferred to the upper part of the valley of Cusco and reach a sand mine at an altitude of 4,000 masl (13,123 ft.). We'll start with a short push up the mountain and then ride down following ancient trails and reach the old Inca trail that was used as a shortcut to go from Cusco to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. As we descend this amazing trail, we'll reach other Inca sites like Zona X and Puca Pucara where we'll have short but steep climbs. Finally, we'll arrive in the village of Yuncaypata and end in Cusco. 
 
Total km of riding: 25 | Elevation gain: 417m | Elevation loss: 1,063m | Highest altitude: 4000m

Day 6. Sacred Valley Treasures

Early in the morning, after a nutritious breakfast, we'll shuttle to Chinchero, one of the most important Inca sites near the Sacred Valley. Chinchero is located at an altitude of 3,700 masl (12,139 ft.) and from this place it's possible to see the entire plateau of Maras and the Vilcanota's Mountain Range with its +5,000 meters glaciers like Chicon and Veronica. We'll cross agricultural fields, border Lake Huaypo and reach the Inca site of Moray at an altitude of 3,600 masl (11,811 ft.). We'll stop here for lunch and explore this Inca agricultural lab and its round terraces, and experience the special energy this place has to offer. We'll continue our tour riding an Inca Trail that will take us to the town of Maras and its Inca Salt Mines. It's a truly spectacular place where we will have amazing views of this salt mine and also the Sacred Valley below us. Finally we will end our tour at the Urubamba River, at an altitude of 3,000 masl (9,843 ft.). We'll then shuttle to the town of Ollantaytambo, where we'll stay for the next three nights. 
 
Total km of riding: 34km | Elevation gain: 254m | Elevation loss: 1,120m | Highest altitude: 3770m

Day 7. Machu Picchu or Huchuy Cusco ride

We recommend you visit Machu Picchu, considered one of the 7 wonders of the world, as an option for this day. The tour starts with a train ride from Ollantaytambo to the town of Aguas Calientes. From there we'll take a bus up to the Citadel. Machu Picchu (like most of the Quechua names of towns and different sites in the region) is a compound word that comes from Machu = old or ancient, and Picchu = peak or mountain; therefore, Machu Picchu is translated as "Old Mountain". The famous mountain that appears in most of the classical views of the site is named Wayna Picchu (Young Mountain). We'll have the entire day to explore the remarkable citadel and learn about its well-preserved secrets. If you opt out of visiting Machu Picchu, you'll have the option of riding the Huchy Cusco trail in the Sacred Valey. Big climbs, big descents following an Inca trail through the mountains. 

N.B. the trip to Machu Picchu is not included in the trip price. The cost to visit Machu Picchu is $310 Cdn/person, which includes return train ride to Aguas Calientes, bus to Machu Picchu, admission and guide.

Day 8. Origin of the Inca Empire

There are three theories that explain the origin of the Inca Empire, all of which agree that it stemmed from Ollantaytambo, on the Patacancha Valley. Early in the morning, we'll start with a bus shuttle from Ollantaytambo and climb towards the Patacancha Valley, a tributary of the Sacred Valley at an elevation of 4,500m. We'll descend mostly, with the occasional odd climbs. We'll cross rivers, pass little villages and enjoy again the stunning views of the Andes.  We will stop in the village of Patacancha for lunch and the local people will show us how they work the land and make their clothing. 
In the afternoon, we'll continue on the dirt road for about 5km before we start climbing to Pumamarca.  The climbing to Pumamarca is around 20 minutes on the bike and 5 of pushing. The singletrack that starts in Pumamarca and ends in Ollantaytambo is one of the best, flowy singletrack with some rocky sections and excellent 360° views.
 
Total km of riding: 31 | Elevation gain: 330m | Elevation loss: 1900m | Highest altitude: 4450m

Day 9. Lares Inca Trail

Early in the morning, after breakfast, we'll shuttle to the town of Calca in the Sacred Valley and then go to the mountain pass of Lares located at 4,420 masl (14,501 ft.). From here, we'll start our ride heading downhill following another impressive Inca trail with thousands of rock steps that look like they were made specifically for mountain bikes. We will pass one of the most impressive landscapes of all the tour, crossing a deep canyon that is only possible to pass on bikes. We'll pass different terrains, from flat surfaces on top of the mountain to great valleys at the middle of the trail. We will finally end our tour on the town of Calca where we will be transferred to the city of Cusco.
 
Total km of riding: 11 | Elevation gain: 0m | Elevation loss: 1000m | Highest altitude: 4420m

Day 10. Cusco and transfer to Lima.

We have reached the last day of our amazing trip in Peru and it's time to say goodbye to Cusco and its wonderful Inca Trails. Flights depart daily at 8:45, 9:55, 11:05 and 13:30, making it possible go shopping in the Indian markets of Cusco. We'll offer an optional morning ride in Cusco for those sticking around until the afternoon or the next day.

  • 9 night accommodation in clean, comfortable hotels
  • Breakfasts and lunches
  • 2 local guides
  • Return flight from Lima to Cuzco
  • All transportation during the trip
  • Airport transfers
  • Admission to Inca cultural sites

Arrival and Departure Airport

You should fly into and out of Lima International Airport (LIM). Please see the schedule page for the exact pickup and dropoff times for your particular trip. You can, if necessary, arrive earlier - we will arrange a pickup for you.

Pickup & Drop-off Information

Included in the price of your trip is a free shuttle from the airport to our hotel in Lima. Upon leaving customs and heading into the main passenger pickup area of Lima airport, look for your shuttle driver with a Sacred Rides sign in his/her hand. We will have a pre-arranged shuttle booked for you to take you to the hotel. n.b.: You will need to notify us in advance of your flight number and arrival time by filling out your Rider dashboard. If your flight is delayed and you happen to miss your pickup shuttle, head to the Taxi Green counter located outside customs and we'll reimburse your cab fare.

On the last day of the trip, there are 4 daily flights from Cusco to Lima, at the following times: 8:45, 9:55, 11:05 and 13:30. The flight takes about an hour and a half, and the airport shuttle to Cusco airport is included in your tour price (provided you are staying in Cusco). 

Since most flights back to North America, and some European flights, depart late at night, you can either check your bags in for your flight home if possible, or check them in at the baggage storage area. You can then head into Lima for dinner if you prefer not to stay at the airport.

Meeting Time on Arrival Day

On arrival day (Day 1 of the itinerary), we'll meet at 6:30pm in the hotel lobby to go out for dinner in Miraflores. If you're arriving later than 6:30pm, we'll meet again at 9:00am once again in the hotel lobby to build our bikes and get ready for an amazing adventure.

Flights

We do not book international flights for our clients. Please contact your local travel agent for information on booking flights for this trip.

Baggage Fees on Peruvian Flights

We will be flying with Star Peru. These internal flights are included in your trip price, but please note there may be extra baggage fees you will be responsible for. Be economical with your packing as you may incur hefty fees if you pack too heavy!
 
Baggage limit: 2 bags and 23Kg in total (including bike). Weight excess fee is $2 USD per extra kg.
 

Machu Picchu and extending your trip

Machu Picchu is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and a can't-miss destination in Peru. We offer an excellent one-day visit to Machu Picchu for $310 CAD, which includes return train trip through the Sacred Valley, bus to Machu Picchu, admission, permits and guide. 

If you want to extend your trip by arriving early or staying on after your trip, we have several excellent trip extensions:

2) Tambopata National Reserve/Amazon Jungle trip (4 days, 3 nights): $1645 CAD

3) Puna + Lake Titicaca (3 days, 2 nights): $795 CAD

These trips can be booked online when making your original booking or can be added to your booking at any time. n.b.: There is a single supplement fee for solo travellers if there is no one that we can pair you up with.

Extra Hotel Nights

If you are planning on spending a few extra nights in either Lima or Cusco before or after your Ride, we can book extra nights for you at the same hotels we'll be using during the trip. These extra nights can be added at the time of your booking, or anytime afterwards up until a month prior to your departure. Nightly rates are as follows:

Lima: $155 CAD (single room) | $180 CAD (double room)

Cusco: $95 CAD (single room) | $120 CAD (double room)

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance, including emergency evacuation coverage, is compulsory for all our tours.

You can purchase discounted comprehensive insurance from our partners at bikeflights.com  via our insurance page.

Fitness Requirements

You should have a moderate to high level of fitness and be able to bike for up to five hours a day in order to fully enjoy the spectacular scenery and riding on this trip.

We recommend you train in advance of this trip, in order to get the most out of this trip. Our experienced coaches have developed a pre-trip training program to help you get in the best possible riding shape and fitness for your trip. Please visit the webpage for more details. 

Travelling with your bike

Pika Packworks bag

If you've never traveled with your bike, don't worry - it's much easier than you think! If you don't have a case for your bike, then you can pick up a cardboard travel box for your bike at your local store. Some stores will also pack your bike up for you for a fee.

Alternately, if you are planning on traveling with your bike more than just this one time, we sell travel bags for bikes, handmade by Pikapackworks. These travel bags are specially made for bikes and can often go on flights without having to pay the extra charges incurred by cardboard boxes or hard cases. The bags cost $395, including shipping withing North America. Click here for more information on our bags.

n.b. you will need to pay an extra fee for traveling with your bike on the flights within Peru. Cost is about $30-$50 USD in each direction.

Bike Rentals

We have a small fleet of 2013 Scott Sparks available for rent. Price is $625 CAD for the Ride duration. You can select this option during the booking process.

What type of bike should you bring?

We recommend you bring a solid trail or light all-mountain bike with 140-150mm travel with grippy tires similar to Maxxis High Roller or Minion 2.35". Please don't bring single wall tires - there are many sharp rocks thorns on the trails in Peru. We highly recommend running tubeless tires. Ideal weight is 25-30 pounds - a good compromise between being light enough for long climbs and beefy enough for technical trails. If you are a strong rider, an enduro bike will do but remember there are some challenging climbs in this trip.

Armour and protection

Knee and shin pads come highly recommended. Full-body protection is not necessary, nor are full-face helmets.

Tools to bring

  • multitool (preferably with chainbreaker)
  • tire levers
  • small bottle of chain lube
  • tire pump
  • suspension pump

Spare Parts for your Bike

Although there are some parts available locally, we recommend you bring the following parts with you to Peru to avoid problems in case of breakdown or broken parts:

  • rear derailleur hanger (at least 1, preferably 2)
  • front and rear brake pads
  • extra chain if your chain is more than 6 months old
  • 4 tubes
  • 2 extra spokes

Weather and Clothing

The weather in the Peruvian lowlands can be quite warm, with highs between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius. However, it can and will get quite cool in the mountains, especially at higher altitudes where it can get as low as 5 degrees Celsius (41 Fahrenheit). We recommend you bring layered clothing that you can wear while riding and in the evenings (e.g. start your ride with a long-sleeve jersey in the morning and then take off a layer once you warm up). You'll want to bring long pants and a light jacket for the evenings spent up in the mountains.

Although rain is rare in the winter months, it isn't unheard of, so we recommend you bring some sort of rain gear or shell.

Packing List

  • comfortable clothes for riding, such as biking jerseys and padded shorts. 3+ sets 
  • helmet
  • knee and shin pads
  • riding shoes
  • bike gloves (2 sets ideal)
  • lightweight, weather-resistant outerwear for riding in inclement weather.
  • warm clothing such as sweaters and fleece jackets and pants for nighttime.
  • sunglasses/eye protection for sunny and/or muddy days.
  • hydration system that can carry at least 2 litres (bottles and/or hydration pack)
  • toiletries i.e. toothbrush, shampoo, soap
  • towel
  • camera
  • sunscreen and insect repellent

Passports & Visas

All travelers require a valid passport (with a minimum of 6 months validity). Citizens of some countries will also require a visa. For more information, visit the World Travel Guide website.

Altitude

Much of the riding on this trip occurs at moderate to high altitude (2,000 m/6,600 ft to 4,500m/14,000 ft.). If you are in decent shape without any lung conditions, the acclimatization we do at the start of the trip should be sufficient. If you are concerned about your ability to deal with altitude we recommend arriving a day or two early and doing some extra riding in the Lima area. Please contact our office to enquire about additional riding/acclimatization days. So far we have had no clients experience anything more severe than a mild headache or sinus congestion.

We do recommend you bring Diamox, just in case.

Emergency Contacts

If you need to contact us in an emergency, you can reach us during office hours at the following numbers:

Dialing within North America: 1 (888) 423-7849
Dialing outside of North America: +1 (647) 999-7955

If you feel that you need to contact us outside of office hours, our Peru operations manager Wayo Stein can be contacted at +51 9879 46645
If you do not receive an immediate answer when calling the above numbers, please leave us a detailed message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Meals and snacks

On this trip, all breakfasts and lunches are included. Dinners are typically taken in local restaurants and are not included in the trip price. You should budget $10-$15 CAD per dinner (depending on the quality of restaurants you choose). We take care to select restaurants that are well-regarded for their cleanliness, in order to avoid food-borne illness. We also supply you with bottled water for drinking for the duration of your trip, and lots of snacks on a daily basis like energy bars, nuts, fruit and chocolate. 

There is always some risk of contracting a food-borne illness when traveling in a developing country. We recommend you exercise caution when purchasing food, and avoid unwashed fruit and vegetables and improperly cooked meals.

Laundry

Laundry facilities are readily available on most nights throughout the trip. It will be very easy and cheap for you to do laundry, so do keep that in mind when packing your bags. Laundry service is available at our hotel in Cusco for a small fee.

Vaccination Requirements

Make sure you are up-to-date on routine vaccines before your trip. Although vaccinations are not required, we highly recommend getting vaccinated for Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Typhoid. We will not be visiting any yellow fever areas on this Ride. For the most up-to-date information, please visit your local travel clinic or the CDC website.

Safety & Security

Peru is a very safe country, however certain precautions should be followed, as with all foreign travel. To maximize your safety during our tours you should exercise common sense and caution at all times. We recommend that you always stick to set travel arrangements, and avoid unknown areas. We also recommend that you wear minimal jewelry and that you keep valuable items safely stored. Always keep a copy of your passport, airline tickets, travelers checks and credit card numbers separate from where you keep the originals.

Other expenses and best ways to get/use money

Other expenses include souvenirs, alcoholic beverages, optional activities such as massage and extra baggage weight ($2 USD per extra kg). 

The best way to pay for these services is to withdraw money from an ATM in Lima or Cusco with your bank card - you can withdraw local money and will usually be charged the best rate by your bank at home. However, you will typically be charged about $5 per transaction, so we recommend withdrawing enough for 2 or 3 days at a time to avoid paying bank fees every day.

Tipping

Gratuities of 10% are common in Peru. We encourage you to tip your guides if you feel you have received excellent service and have had an enjoyable trip. A typical gratuity $50 - $100 per guide.

Currency exchange

The Peruvian currency is the Nuevo Sol. For the latest currency exchange information use the Yahoo! Currency Exchange Calculator

We review every application and if, based on your responses, we think you're a good fit, we'll approve your application and you'll receive a link to place a deposit. If we think you might not be a good fit (either too skilled or not skilled enough for the Ride you chose), then we'll give you a call to discuss your preferences in greater detail.

Please note: our application process isn't about excluding anyone, or making anyone feel like they're not 'good enough' to participate in one of our Rides. It's about ensuring that you end up on the right Ride for you, with people of similar skill, fitness and riding preferences. In the end this ends up being a much better experience for everyone.
