Bike Trail to Heaven

Machu Picchu

A bike trail to Machu Piccu?  I think I’ve died and gone to heaven. For some reason, I’ve always been under the impression that the only way you could get to Machu Picchu was by a hiking trail. But thanks to Steve, from Aspiring Adventures, I discovered that it’s possible (and actually quite fun) to bike to the fabled Incan city.

“We’ll bike to Machu Picchu, ride myriad tracks around the hills of Cusco, and cycle from Maras to Salineras – two unique and incredible Incan sites. Cycle through the incomparable farmland and river gorges of the Lares Valley, camping overnight along the way at high-altitude, natural thermal hot baths perched over a jagged river gorge! Mix hiking and biking single-track or easy downhill road riding in any combination.”
