Bike downhill from the highest point in Ecuador!
The tour begins in Riobamba, we pick you up at your hotel and drive by 4WD to the first of Chimborazo´s refuges (Carrel Brothers) at 4,800 meters. We have a short hike from the first to the second refuge (Edward Whymper) at 5,000 meters, then return the first refuge from where we start our downhill bike ride.
