ABOUT THE TRIP:
he ride itself is not technically difficult. We will be riding mostly paved roads or gravel roads in generally good conditions, but there is a couple of long riding days. 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. It is advisable to have rain gear.
Wearing suitable riding gear and protective equipment is the responsibility of each participant. Remember that we will be going to very high altitudes (over 5,000m), therefore bringing suitable clothing, sunglasses, hat and sun-blocker is important.
