Sport Ride / Intermediate downhill level

Olleros

This is the main classic downhill ride of Peru. Since the first ride, more than 30 years ago, this trail has been ridden by almost every mountain bike rider of Lima.
Dropping 3400m from the Andes to the shores of the Pacific Ocean makes this trip one great adventure and is one of the funniest trails we have in Peru.

AVAILABLE FROM MAY TO NOVEMBER

Average Stats:
3460 mt Negative Elevation / 50 Km

About the Place:

Olleros name is because of the ancestral job of this region: cooking pots of clay (ollas in Spanish), these pots are a very typical and classic way to cook some meals, traditional people say that meals are better if cooked in a pot of clay.
The village is located at 2800m height but we start at a higher altitude.

The Trail:

SINGLETRACKS downhill trail / 20+ Km / Intermediate to Expert Level. If you feel that can´t make it you have the option to ride on the gravel road.
MORE SINGLETRACKS: 30 Km of an easy flat ride but have to pedal anyway, some parts on singletracks others by a gravel road.
Another thing is the weather: depending on the month the weather on the coast could be very cold and humid, so ask before what to wear.

What to bring:

Try to bring your basic equipment: helmet, gloves and protective wear (recommended).
Some snacks of your preferences (we include some)
1Lt of water, a wind vest or a couple of layers on winter days. Sunscreen for the sections in the Andes.
We carry on the van some fruits, and extra water, if you need to request some special meals please ask.

Important:

To ride all sections, you must be very honest with your skills, if never have done a downhill by singletracks, please consider seriously to take instead the gravel road instead.
In case you want to try (think of the possibility of spending too much time on the trail and shortening the trip´s final distance or having some injury) this route has a technical first section (A) that usually must be done in 30 minutes as average, if you take more time is because you do not have the required experience to flow on trails, that will compromise your endurance for the rest of trail, in this case, you must ride only by the gravel road that follows beside the trail.
Section B flows easier, section C is the hardest, only for good riders, and section D starts once the downhill singletracks finish and takes you to San Bartolo Beach.
Olleros is available only if you are at least an intermediate rider. Beginners may ride here too but will use the road instead of the trails.

Fully recommended to use a Full Suspension Bike
Very Small Group only.
