Costa Verde Lima Beaches
Have only three hours for training? or just a funny ride?
This ride runs along the coastline of Lima city known as the Costa Verde.
Everyone with average training.
All the year. Ideal from November to May.Riding time:
2- 3 hours approx.
About the Place:
Lima City has the ocean in front. During the last years governments have made projects (some well done others not really) to transform the Costa Verde road into a multi users place. That means that today we profit a flat cycle lane that covers practically the bay (a couple of small parts not completed yet).
This make this trail very safe to ride bikes, better early, when there are very few people there, except for the sports ones: runners, surfers, swimmers, etc.
About the Rides:
Starting from our place in Surco, we need 15 to 20 minutes to get to the beach riding across the streets, once there we could ride the cyclelane to complete maybe 30 or 50 Km, it´s up to you, it will will depend on your availability of time or the average of speed, or distance you usually ride.
So then, if you want to do a sport ride or if you just want to take a relaxed ride, this is the nearest and easiest choice. In short:
Training Mode: Average of 20kph, 2h30 + stops, 50K, basically ride enough fast.
Relaxed Mode: Average of 15kph, 3h + stops, 40 to 50 K, it can be tailored stopping on our way at Barranco and on our way back we may ride by the cyclelane that follows the seafront streets.
What to bring:
Try to bring your own basic equipment: helmet, glove, if not we provide.
Just a small snack and 1 Lt of water. Sunscreen in summer.
A windvest or a couple of layers in winter days.
During months of July to September, rains are more frequent in the city, be awared of this issue, in these days ride may be delayed or cancelled if weather may not secure a safe ride. Lima is a city not prepared for rains and when is wet it takes a lot of time to get dried.
