Photo Journal: Mountain Biking Peru

November 30, 2016

The best Dai­ly Dirt con­tent always comes from our Rid­ers, the pas­sion­ate moun­tain bik­ers from around the globe that are eager to explore new trails, cre­ate long-last­ing friend­ships and ride, ride, ride! That’s why after our Inca-Trail All Moun­tain Bike trip in Peru this Sep­tem­ber, I was excit­ed to con­nect with Rid­er and pho­tog­ra­ph­er, Jose Galaz to see his pho­tos and read about his adven­tures moun­tain bik­ing in beau­ti­ful Peru. We have four dif­fer­ent moun­tain bike trips in Peru, and our 10-day All-Moun­tain trip allows rid­ers to expe­ri­ence spec­tac­u­lar scenery and the vibrant Inca cul­ture. Par­tic­i­pants on this trip (and all our trips!) expe­ri­ence some of the best rid­ing Peru has to offer.

Rid­ers explore beau­ti­ful trails through­out the Cus­co and Ollan­tay­tam­bo region and get to expe­ri­ence one of the won­ders of the world: Machu Picchu.

“Some rides nev­er end, in your mind at least. Rid­ing the All-Moun­tain Inca-Trail with Sacred Rides does­n’t end on the 10th day, it keeps going, it makes you smile every time you remem­ber some­thing about the expe­ri­ence, even if it was months ago.

For me, a trip to the Peru­vian Andes com­bined some of my life-long pas­sions: as a teenag­er, I stayed out of trou­ble by prac­tic­ing and per­form­ing Andean Folk music dur­ing and after high school. Fast for­ward sev­er­al years, and as a ‘recov­er­ing couch pota­to,’ moun­tain bik­ing became my new obsession.

Thanks to my bike, I dis­cov­ered, among many oth­er things, my lat­est pas­sion for photography.

Sacred Rides made it so easy to have a wor­ry-free trip, to enjoy every day to the fullest, appre­ci­ate spec­tac­u­lar views, absorb the Inca cul­ture and cre­ate life-long memories.”

We arrived to the Miraflo­res area of Lima very ear­ly and had all day to walk around and sight-see. I was hap­py to share this adven­ture with my good friends, Sean and Gil.
