Here’s a taste of what the site offers: the Cotopaxi 360 route in Ecuador. Covering a distance of 67 miles, the route also includes a 7,200’ ascent to reach a high point at 13,650’, which explains the 8 out of 10 difficulty. The route features dry, lunar-like terrain as well as forest roads, tufty paramo trails, and two tracks covered in grass. While riding through the winding paths of the Cotopaxi National Park, one can admire an array of local vegetation and wildlife, with glimpses at the Cotopaxi volcano also accessible here and there.

The guide also includes must-know information about weather conditions, suitable bikes, food and water supplies, or local shops with bike and camping gear, among many other important facts. All you’ll need to do is start packing your travel bags for that unforgettable bike adventure. A big ‘thank you’ to the source of this article, our friends at Urban Cycling.
