It is extremely dangerous to take this route with a bicycle. The highway is very busy and there is no room to move to the side of the road when buses, trucks and cars pass you in high speed. Needless to say that breathing their...More
One of the pleasant surprises that I encountered during my stay in Baños was the opportunity to do a 60 km (38 mile) bike ride to Puyol known as La Ruta de Las Cascadas (or Route of the Waterfalls). In 2015, while living in South...More
The best of what baños has to offer,
we rented bikes from Kajol Lavan Travel,
they gave us helmets, chain, lock, a map and a good explanation of the road, and we just went, most of the read is downhill, so it is not a...More
We rentes some bikes from Wonderful Equador (really easy and cheap), and went down the main road towards puyo. It's fun, and you get to see a couple of warerfalls on the way. We thought that the Machay waterfall were better for a couple like...More
Is a very fun tour to do during the day. Also a must IN Baños... A good idea is to rent a bike and do the tour by your own, or a chiva is a good idea... Bring good shoes for hiking as well... You...More

Hey, I did the Chivas bus tour so I'm not sure how long the bike route option would take. I'm guessing it depends on 1) your fitness 2) how may stops you make and how long you stop for. Also, if you are doing Casa de arbol are you taking a public bus there/walking/going with a tour group?
I would say you could spend the morning doing the ruta de las cascadas on bike then do the casa de arbol with a tour group in the afternoon. From what I saw going with a group is between $6- $10 and the last group leaves around 16:00. So it should be possible to do both activities in one day. Going with a tour group will take about 2 hours for casa de arbol. So will get you back in time for cenar :)
Be very careful if you going to bike ruta de las cascadas. There is no cycle lane and you share the road with motorists, buses, bikes, chivas tours and the occasional donkey. Personally I would only do it during the week (less traffic from tour groups) and in good weather (unlike the last few days here).
Either way, it's an amazing experience and bring some cash for the cable cars, canopying and odd road side snack (very delicious).
