Do I need previous experience?

It does not require experience, however it is a long pedaling, ideal to start cycling. Good physical condition is required.

Do we ride with a backpack or saddlebag?

We ride without saddlebags. You can carry a small backpack to have water, extra clothes, Sunscreen, protein bars, etc.

Is it possible to ride with a bicycle that is not MTB?

Because of the geography of the terrain, we do not recommend it. The bicycle we recommend for the trip is a Mountain Bike, minimum 21 gears, with front cushioning, good quality and in good condition.

Can I rent a bicycle ? I have an MTB but it is not so good.

We do not recommend it, we request to bring your own bicycle, the same with the one you work out.

 It is also important that you are comfortable and that you know your bike. In case of contacting us, tell us your experience and training. If you do not have a MTB bike or it is diffcult for you for travel reasons, we can evaluate the rent of a bicycle.

What happens if I break my bike?

We have tools and materials to carry out light repairs, but it is important that you know that your bicycle is prepared for this type of activities. If you have doubts, we recommend you to take it to your trusted bicycle shop to perform a service.
