About the Place:

The east of the city of Lima is surrounded by a lot of mountains that we must pass and leave behind if we want to travel to the Andes.
These mountains today are filled with houses of different social conditions, choosing the ones that have low traffic and enough good safety conditions, best if they will be ridden on weekends in the districts of Surco and La Molina.
So if you want to do a ride with a good average of positive altitude, and want to do it fully on a bike with no transportation this is the right choice.

About the Ride:

Starting from our place in Surco, we will go to La Molina, a nice neighbourhood in the East of Lima. Mostly recommended for weekends, it can be done also on weekdays if you are not worried about the traffic, anyway, that side of the city is less busy than the rest of the city.

These are our options:
Average and trained riders: Distance 60-85 Km. Av. time 4h30, up to 900mt climb.
Average riders: Distance 40-55 Km. Average time 3h30, up to 600mt climb.
Beginners and enthusiast riders: Distance 30-35 Km. Av. time 3h00, up to 400mt climb.

What to bring:
Try to bring your basic equipment: helmet, gloves, if not we include them.
Just a small snack and 1 Lt of water. There are many shops where we can fill water and pick some snacks. Sunscreen in summer.
A wind vest or a couple of layers on winter days.

During July to September, rains are more frequent in the city, be aware of this issue, on these days ride may be delayed to secure a better safer ride. Lima is a city not well prepared for rain and when is wet it takes a lot of time to get dried.
