BBC Biker In Peru - May 2018


In May 2018 I went to Peru and on 4 days of my trip I biked in the Sacred Valley region between Cusco and Aguas Callientes, the gateway city to Machu Picchu.  I used a mountain bike provided by Aspiring Adventures, the tour operator.  Younger people on our trip headed to the off road tracks.  But as a road biker, I preferred to remain on the asphalt for the 10 + mile descents that we rode each day. High in the Andes, the scenery was majestic.

Everything about the trip and the tour operator was excellent.  In addition to biking, my adventure included visiting 9 sites with Inca ruins, a day of hiking, 4 days in the Amazon, and a day at each Lake Titicaca and Lima - all in 2 1/2 weeks.  If you are interested in biking, some camping, great food, and other tourism in Peru, this trip would be a good choice.
