There’s a reason the South American Andes is spoken about with awe, and the cone of Ecuador’s Cotopaxi volcano is the icing on this mountainous hunk of cake. Scraping the sky at more than 5800 metres above sea level, the stratovolcano is currently snoozing after chucking a tantrum in late 2015, when it spat smoke and ash into the air. Rug up for altitude and thunder down its foothills on a 30-kilometre cycling trip with Biking Dutchman Tours. A back-up vehicle will carry you up high, where you’ll swing onto the saddle of a 21-speed mountain bike and head off-road, winding through ancient lava fields and past wild horses grazing in grassy plains studded with wildflowers. Stop at Incan ruins, enjoy a homemade picnic lunch, and spot the snowy giant reflected on the surface of Limpiopungo Lake. View all article

About Biking Dutchman
The company is based in Quito, Ecuador just a short drive from the Avenue of the Volcanoes, in the heart of the Andes mountains. From here cyclists have access to a huge diversity of rides ranging from snow-capped, active volcanoes, exhilarating paramo, cloud forest, and jungle paths. Our trails cross hundreds of miles, most completely free of traffic, on unpaved roads and tracks. Of course, the great heights of the mountains make up-hill rides difficult at times. Consequently, we offer our clients the option of cycling tours with little or no uphill riding. Our trusty support vehicles will do the donkey work and get you to the top . . . unless of course you enjoy the uphill excitement! That’s the great bonus about Biking Dutchman trips: no sore legs, no cleaning dirty bikes, and no need to mend roadside punctures. Our experienced, friendly guides will show you the way and take care of all the details. Our tours are sure to please bikers of all ages and levels of experience, from the most seasoned veteran with an adventurous spirit to those new to mountain biking looking for a pleasant, novel way to take in the wondrous beauty of Ecuador. We specialize in mountain biking to ensure the best results.
