Patagonia Mountain Biking
Bikes & Equipment

The Mountain Bikes: Specialized Rockhopper
Expediciones Chile has ten Specialized Rockhopper Mountain Bikes. The bikes were purchased in 2001 and are regularly maintained. They come equipped with a 21 speed Shimano gruppo.

Participants are welcome to bring thier own mountain bikes on our trips.
However, getting a mountain bike to Chile can be problematic and we don't therefore reccomend the option. Traveling through Bariloche or Esquel Argentina is probably the best way. Mountain bikes can not be transported on the flight between Puerto Montt and Chaiten so must be ferried across.

Sag Support by Safari Bus
Most of our mountain bike trips away from the Adventure Center Lodge will be sag supported with our multisport safari bus. No need to pack heavy panniers or tow unwieldy trailers in Chile.
Most guest will ride with a small day or hip pack to carry their essential items.

Pedals & Toe Clips
Our bikes come with standard flat pedals which allow for easy transition from the pedals to the ground. These work great for individuals riding from the lodge but are not ideal for longer trips or those who like to ride with clips or clipless pedal systems.
More serious cyclists are strongly encouraged to bring thier own cycling shoes and clipless pedal systems and fit them to our mountain bikes.

Hydration Systems
After having experimented with different hydration system we have found it best is our guests bring their own personal camelbak hydration system or similar.
CamelBaks when kept clean provide the most sanitary means of rehydration when on long rides.

Cycling Helmets
AExpediciones Chile provides a standard ANZI approved cycling helmet for all of our riders. These helmets are comfortable and durable.
Any cyclist who wants to bring their own helmet is welcome to substitute our helmets for theirs.
