Caral is the main site of archaeological investigations, the begining of the andean life, the pyramids have 5,000 years old, anyway our goal is not the archaeology but the environment that had not too much changes, except for the human behaviour, since centuries.
In the valley the villages are at one side of the road, so we choose that side for riding.
The route is clearly and typical like any coastal one, with a dry mountain at one side and a very green land at the other side.
The ride is about 30K of smooth climb starting at the highway crossroad, passing near some other ancient buildings and an Inca citadel, surey built during the conquest of Pachacutec army.
Very important, leave the city very early, from our meeting point we have to cross the whole city, and it take 3 hours or a bit more to reach the start point, A very good breakfast and carry enough water, the sun if appears is a devil itself.
