Mountainbike Valle de Uco - WIne Route - Oct 2021

From Tunuyan - Quebrada del Cóndor (Potrerillos)- Potrerillos - Cacheuta - Tupungato


How many kilometres do we ride per day?

We pedal an average of 50 km per day ,from 10am to 5pm. We will stop for hydration, to take pictures, lunch and to visit interesting places while we cross.


Do we ride with a backpack or saddlebag?

We ride without saddlebags. If possible, without a backpack. Your personal belongings will travel in the support vehicle.


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

For 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.


How do I transfer my bike to San Martin de los Andes?
  • CAR: If you travel by car to San Martin.
  • BUS: You must pack it and send it to San Martin de los Andes. You should check with the bus company if you can travel with your bike in the bus or if you should send it before hand.
  • PLANE (Recommended): If you need advice, consult us. You should put protections inside the box. A good recommendation is to store inside clothes, sleeping bag, etc. so that your bike can travel as much protected as possible. Keep in mind that you should not pay extra for carrying the bike, since it is considered sports equipment (if it is within 15kg ). Take into account  that as carry-on luggage ,you can also carry 5kg.


What happens if I get tired and I can not continue?

The entire journey is accompanied by a support vehicle. In case of getting tired or if injured, we can carry your bike and continue in the vehicle.


What happens if I break my bike?

Our support vehicle is equipped with tools and materials to fix your bike. In case it can not be repaired, we have a spare bicycle to replace your damaged one.
