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!

Day 1:

Early in the moring we arrive at  our hotel in “La Cumbre” and prepare our bikes for today.  After breakfast, we receive the tour introduction and start cycling from the hotel´s gate to “Cuchi Corral” a beautiful panoramic point, where international paragliders usually take off to enjoy the incredible views and the excellent “flying conditions” of the area. From “Cuchi Corral” at 1100 metres over the sea level, we start an awesome technical down hill that will take us to San Marcos Sierra an old “hippie” look like town, while crossing small tinny streams. In the afternoon we’ll load the bikes up in the trailer to arrive at our Hotel in “La Cumbre”.

Day 2: La Cumbre to Candonga

 Our second biking day starts in “La Cumbre” at 1175 metres with another hard up hill that will enable us to get incredible views from the small cities of the valley. After sixmiles we arrive at the highest point at 4900 ft that will allow us to see great yellow grass landscapes and the small hilly path getting lost in the horizon. After lunch we start enjoying this great downhill to Candonga, where a small tiny white Spanish Chapel still lies in the Sierras. We end our ride at “El Manzano” and return to our hotel at La Cumbre.

Day 3: La Falda to Río Ceballos

We travel by van to La Falda, where we unload the bikes to start another great biking day at one of the best paths of Córdoba Province: “El Camino del Cuadrado” (Square path). By the “Eden Hotel”, an old hotel constructed by German
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.
