I was suckered into going with one of the "best" outfitters. Mistake. They allowed too many other cyclists to travel the day I went which made everything take too much time. The guides missed superb photo stops including the sign for the Death Road (only...More

Second trip to death rd in 4 years, went for a more suitable company that was a little more expensive however has exceptional gear. Smaller groups that make the day more manageable and fun. Best advise front and rear suspension bikes are a must!
