Choosing the Right Trip
Mountain biking is a great source of fun and exercise for people of all ages and abilities, but like any activity, there are levels of difficulty that range from quite manageable for most to the very difficult reserved only for truly experienced individuals. We want to make sure that the trip you choose is the one that’s best for you, the one that you will enjoy the most, and so we have classified each of our tours into three categories: easy, moderate, and challenging. In classifying the trips we take into consideration the distance covered, the terrain, weather conditions and altitude. In all cases and as an added precaution, on every trip a driver in a support vehicle closely follows our guests so that anyone in need of a rest can take a break and hitch a ride to continue along with the group. Trip Levels Easy: Suitable for most people in good health. Moderate: Requires a reasonable level of fitness – these trips can require sustained endurance levels, hills, longer days and higher altitudes. Challenging: Physically demanding and best suited for strong people with a lot of endurance. Days can be long, often at altitude, and in remote regions with tough terrain.
Discover the Ecuadorean Andes in a heart-racing trip to Cotopaxi, Quilotoa and Chimborazo, all in one three-day mountain biking trip. Descend Cotopaxi, one of the highest active volcanoes in the world and bike on a volcanic-ash dirt road through a world-class paramo landscape and lunch by Inca ruins. Sleep on the shores of Quilotoa, a deep jade colored crater Lake and break bread with the Indian community of the place. Experience 5000 meters of adrenaline and bliss as you wind down Chimborazo, the highest mountain in Ecuador. See More…
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 downhill-only cycling tours. 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.
