Lurin River Valley

The bikers option for those who like distance and non technique trails.
Everyone choses where to start, and how much distance ride and the altitude to reach. Endurance is the key for this destination.

Recommended for:
Basic level to up.

Season:
All the year.

Riding time:
3-6 hours approx.

About the Place:

Lurin River is south from Lima and is the nearest point to do a ride that kind. Similar rides can be donde along the coast, but this is one of the most used because its approch to homes and city.
Lima is at 100 masl and as Pachacamac are the usual starting points, from Lima crossing the city that for many of us is not ideal.  Another usual option is Cieneguilla district at 300 masl and in the main road of Lutin River.
One interesting thing about this place is that the old Inca Trail was built following this valley and on the road we find many ancient sites, some of them good for visit.

About the Rides

As I told you can start from your house spending like 20Km or 1 1/2 hour in traffic, think that the way back you have to deal with that again.
Starting from Pachacamac is more quiet and easy, and is the rightful choice.
Start at 150 m and in less than an hour you arrive to Cieneguilla riding 12Km. Then, you may choose to continue riding up to the mountains, or enjoy the return riding down by the green valley.
Once in Cieneguilla (300m) there is only one way up to the mountains. The paved road start in Cieneguilla and continues for around 45Km to the small village of Antioquia at 1500 m in a climb that is quite hot. But don´t worry there are many points to recover and get some water or fruit even take a good meal.
