ADVICE FOR BIKERS

Normal physical conditions and summer clothes, bikers require good acclimatization over 4000m. One day before all the bikers will have meeting with the mountain bike guide at our office or your hotels, who will give a BRIEFING about this bike trip and also you can check the quality of bikes and gear will be used on this trip. This is available trip for beginners and people of all age, the road for downhill is in good conditions and not technical level, just nice downhill and cross country on the last part of the trip.
Tour guide advice you to book trip with private supporting vehicle because some time people feel tired on the last part of the trip. Another facility taking PRIVATE VIP SERVICE the vehicle can be used to stop and visit places along the road between Cusco and the jungle. Also when you will be biking is better to leave your personal items in the supporting vehicle making more comfortable your biking trip without backpack in your back. In case you book this trip with public bus (backpacker service) you have to cycle all the way down even if you feel tired, this is not usual but is not nice if some needs to do it.
Is recommendable have yellow fiber vaccination (malaria) because you will be 3 days in the high and low jungle. We never hear news about problems with malaria in this zone but is better to be prepared and feel more safe.

LOCAL KIDS AND ADULTS

Along the way you will met many people, specially kids walking long distance to arrive at school and study 5 hours and they back home after maybe 30 minutes or 2 - 4 hours depending how far they live from the school. Normally they are son or daughter of poor farmers living on the mountains. We strongly recommend help us to give some present to them like pencils, notebook, dictionaries, toys, clothes (socks, gloves, hat, t-shirt, etc) and something to eat. We don't recommend giving them things like candies, chew gun, soda, camping knife or money. If you really like to make picture of them, especially of adults we strongly advise you to ask first. If you don't speak any word of Spanish language (español) coordinate with your guide to see if is possible to have picture of them.
