San Carlos de Bariloche offers a wide variety of circuits for mountain bike riding. We recommend this intense climb to cerro Catedral along a paved route and then climbing the balcony over lake Gutierrez in the area of Paco Echegaray.
For this excursion we can hire the service of Dirty Bikes or any other operator offering cycling outings.
We will be given a special bicycle, a helmet and a guide who will tell us about the different alternatives.
We leave together from downtown through V.A.O'Connor to the south and take Av. Bustillo to ride 9.5 uneven kilometers skirting lake Nahuel Huapi.
During the ride you will pass by several viewpoints. As you ride up, the guide will teach you how to use the different gear for a better outcome and find your own rythm on the bike.
When you are climbing, you will have to select a bigger pinion, and if the slope is too steep, reduce the plates. But if you go down, you must do the opposite. It is always advisable to drink some water every 15 minutes so as not to get dehydrated.
