Ride Day 52: Cusco, Peru to Machu Picchu with Belmond Hiram Bingham

After spending a day touring Cusco, Peru and organizing my trip to Machu Pichu (which took some time), it was Machu Picchu Day! I left my home at 7 am and rode to Poroy Station where I would embark on my journey to Machu Picchu with Belmond Hiram Bingham train and tour. The ride was mostly through small towns and was a lot of fun, even though I had some weather on the journey.

Ride Day 47: Jaen, Peru to Trujillo, Peru

After spending only two nights in Jaén, Peru I had a long day riding to Trujillo, Peru which is where I would spend only one night. It would take me a massive 13 hours to get to Trujillo, Peru taking in around 400 miles (625 kilometers) mostly on the paved roads. The biggest feature of this ride was going from the dense, lush rainforests into the barren mountains and windswept deserts of Peru.

Ride Day 44: Quito, Ecuador to Cuenca, Ecuador

After spending 4 nights in Quito Ecuador, I needed to get back on the road and the 290+ miles (487 kilometres) to Cuenca, Ecuador. The ride would take me deep into the Andes Ranges and would take over 8 hours. It was so great to get on the road again and driving high up mountains and then deep into the valleys through some spectacular villages on my way to Cuenca was a treat I had been missing for a while.
