MOUNTAIN BIKING

Back roads & single track in the Andes and beyond

The mountain biking in South America has incredible potential. From ancient Incan trail systems to newly developed routes, mountain biking is a great way to travel and see rural South America, especially the Andes and cloud forest. Whether you just want to get somewhere faster than walking, or you are going for the all-out adrenaline-rush, these South American countries could be great for you…

Bolivia

 

Due to the size of the Andes, you can ride downhill all day and never have to take a break to go back up! From beginner friendly trails to much more technical single track lines, Bolivia is a mountain biker’s dream come true. Local riders will show you the ropes and give you a first-class introduction to their favorite trails.

When to go: April through October is characterized by cooler temperatures, especially in the highlands or salt flats, but also minimal rainfall. The skies will be clear and the trails fresh!

Ecuador

 

Ecuador is a great country for multi-sport trips. Due to the size of the country, you may not be able to spend a whole week focusing on one sport, but the opportunity to spend a couple days mountain biking through this section of the Andes is unmissable!

When to go: May through November is the dry season in the highlands so will provide the clearest days for hitting the trails!

Colombia

Unlike Ecuador, Colombia is big enough for you to mountain bike your heart out. Mountain bikes are a great way to not only see the country, but to get your heart pounding as well! You never know what you might find along the trail, don’t miss out on a great opportunity for adventure!

When to go: The dry season in Colombia, and therefore the best time for biking, runs from December through April.
