ABOUT THE ROAD:
The ride itself is not technically very difficult. We will be riding either paved roads or gravel roads in generally good condition. There can be dust and sometimes some mud – all depends on the weather. High altitude may contribute to tiredness.
It is not a race, and we care about safety. We will be going at our own pace and make sure all participants reach the destination safely.
The weather at this time of the year is generally dry and sunny but also subject to radical changes as it happens in the high mountains. Remember that we will be going to very high altitudes (over 5,000m) and having suitable clothing and sun-blocker is important.
Remember this is a motorcycle trip, so you have to use adequate gear. We will drive through very diversified areas, including high altitude roads, so you have to be prepared for changing weather conditions.
