A mountain bike is a powerful tool for exploring. It opens the door to vast horizons, fascinating cultures and thrilling landscapes, and incites smiles and genuine conversations with locals you won’t get through any other means of transportation. You’ll cover far more ground than by foot, yet without glossing over the many hidden gems and local treasures you would from the seat of a tour bus.
On our Explorer Rides (offered through Sacred Rides Mountain Bike Adventures – rated #1 mountain bike tour operator by National Geographic Adventure), we utilize the mountain bike as a means of exploring – mostly by way of gravel roads, dirt tracks and the odd slice of flowy single track – to show you the essence and soul of a region. We do it by breaking a sweat, getting out of our comfort zones, meeting with locals and having a blast along the way.
If the above sounds appealing, we have two exquisite trip offerings you’re going to absolutely fall in love with. These rides are specifically designed for the adventurous and fit road biker who is happy to shift from skinny to knobby tires if it means getting off the beaten path (both literally and figuratively) without getting into anything too technical, challenging or “hardcore”.
Explore these incredible adventures below, and take advantage of an exclusive offer for Bicycle Adventures guests (read on for more details!).
Cusco to the Amazon Adventure

As we do so, you’ll get acquainted with a side of Peru that very few people do – by visiting remote villages virtually unchanged since ancient Inca times and staying in locally-owned lodges – on the best modes of transportation to take it all in: by the seat of a mountain bike.

Nate is the Chief Operating Director at Sacred Rides (aka Rider Happiness Guy) and loves to ride his bike. Any bike, really. Ideally in mountains and surrounded by forest. More than anything, he loves helping others experience the joy and awesomeness of mountain bike travel in phenomenal destinations. He makes pretty tasty homemade jerky and has a weak spot for Nutella and peanut butter, mixed together.
