At the old Spanish Jesuit order “ranches” and small colonization churches, we are able to offer a great technical bike trip, designed for particular taste levels only in springtime and winter season: Cuchi Corral paragliders point downhill towards San Marcos Sierra artisan’s town and the double Sierras cross where we will face hard uphill, to enjoy then great dirt roads downhill where, if lucky, we will have the chance to cycle over snow!

immigrants after the Second World War, we prepare the bikes and we start a strong
uphill that will take us from 3200 feet over the sea level to 4200 feet in just three miles. Downhill begins, and while enjoying this curved zig-zag awesome path, we’ll cover more than 20 miles to arrive to “Rio Ceballos” at 2.300 feet over the sea level. There we stretch, have lunch, take a shower and load the bikes to return to Buenos Aires.
