Mountain Biking Chimborazo
Province reveals the most andean of all ecuadorean provinces
with the largest, most dense indigenous population and the
highest and widest mountain ranges in Ecuador. Thus its capital,
Riobamba, at the geographic center of Ecuador, is historically
known as The Sultan of the Andes and the Heart of the Fatherland.
We offer excursions to Chimborazo and other snowpeaks, mountain
lakes, thermal pools, rain and cloud forests and indigenous,
historic and cultural sites that reveal unimagined natural
and cultural wonders hidden to the common tourist. Following
you can see only a small sample of what Ciclotur offers.
mountain bike trips
or Three-day bike trips
|We offer trips to a variety of interesting
places. For the majority of these trips a support vehicle
is not essential (it is optional) and our office could
be the starting point. But for distant places like Chimborazo
(2000 meters climb), Guamote or Santa Fe de Galán
a support vehicle is required.
||These trips are for adventurous tourists
seeking less touristic places far from Riobamba. In addition
to biking equipment and support vehicle we provide food,
lodging, camping equipment and all that is needed for

Considering aspects like distance, type of terrain, acclimatization,
vertical profile of the route and physical fitness of participants,

at least once or twice a week.
