We pick you up from your hotel between 08:45-09:15am and drive up to the Foothills of the Andes Mountains at the edge of Santiago. After gearing up we invite you to an Instruction on the Bikes and Riding techniques as well as a quick stretching. We start riding up the road to Farrellones till turning into a small gravel road finishing in a little farm on the bottom of the Trails. The Uphill takes 1,5 hrs and leads through a naturally beautiful and scenic Mountain Landscape full of Cactus and rich birdlife. Las Varas is one of the best spots for views over Santiago but being far enough away to feel free in nature. On top we fuel up with a tasty lanch pack and prepare with instructions for the way down. The downhill is steep and loose and requires good technical handling of the bike. The ride is along a mountainridge and is covered in beautiful and sometimes flowering cactus. Arriving down we have to make our way back to the car and head back to town. The possibility of a original Chilean BBQ afterwards will refuel everyone and give us time to revise and converse the Adventure of the day.
Optional original Chilean BBQ
