Here is a peek of what a group of 11 Canadians from BC and Calgary got to experience. This is Peru Style!

When the hunt is on for a new biking adventure, Peru is a good place to add to the list. It provided much more than just a simple bike trip. We were always wondering what was around each corner. Peru has a variety of trails to offer and includes everything: dried up riverbeds full of small hits, wall rides and forest single tracks; to barren ridge lines with endless freeride possibilities.

Hope you enjoyed it.

 Respect for having balls to just leave your home for something you are not sure about. I hope it works out for you.

 @sladevallydh you are an embarrassment. Please delete your account, if you even own a bike, please sell it. VIVA PERU!!!

 My dad's an international helicopter currently flying 10,000-hour shifts in Peru transporting oil and gas exploration equipment. He sure loves it.

 would be so awesome to have heli-bike trips here in the Andes Mountains! how can I call your Dad!

 You'll have to contact Great Slave Helicopters' Peruvian partner, Helisafe. Pilots don't control their flights, since it's stupid money per hour to run a helicopter.

 Awesome place, just got back from a 2 week trip of a lifetime. The biking is endless, so many trails and the people are super friendly. I rode the Milky Way trail in cusco with Juanito and it was a blast...3200' descent on single track!
