Begin your journey down the Pichincha Volcano with an amazing descent. As you drop into the thick cloud forest, the tundra grass of the Andean paramo transforms right before your eyes (and the knobby tires of your bikes.) Spectacular vistas of steep gorges and slopes shrouded in thick vegetation may be seen from the 3-4 hour downhill ride. Stop for a snack at a roadside rest stop. Arrive back in Quito in the late afternoon or early evening. 

This tour lasts whole day.
