Descend over 3500 meters from the top of the Andes to the lush high jungle of the Amazon Basin on one of the world’s best cycling adventures.

On top of the line, full suspension mountain bikes your experienced and passionate guides will take you on a two-wheeled adventure which is the kind of Epic that only the Andes can provide. This ride should be on everyone’s bucket list and with good reason.

Good to know:

Please bring lots and lots of layers of clothing. Remember, it’s freezing at the top of most of our rides, and really warm at the bottom! So bring t-shirts, thermals, a fleece, waterproof jackets, glove liners for under or over the provided downhill cycling gloves. You’ll need to start the ride with long trousers, but on some days you can expect to change into shorts and a t-shirt towards the bottom. We don’t allow you to wear sandals during the ride, but anything from trainers to hiking boots will do. Make sure you’ve got a good pair of sporty UVA-UVB sunglasses, both for ray protection and to help keep the dust and grit out of your eyes. Cash for any entrance fees or to buy extras. A parace wouldn't be a bad idea either (just checking to see if you are actually reading this). Note: You cannot ride with a backpack on the WMDR ride for safety/visibility reasons, but you can always leave you backpack on the support vehicle from Gravity that will be following the group all day.

Anyone returning from WMDR or Size Matters (Chacaltaya-Zongo) with us on the day of the ride should bring a change of clothes, including shoes. You get wet and dirty on these rides!

Children must pay for an extra guide to accompany them. $40
