Owner description: Gravity Peru is under new ownership as of 2016. We are updating our rides and prices for 2016 as well as moving offices. However, Gravity Peru has long been the industry leader in Cusco Peru for mountain bike tours and will continue to be! We are the best, and would love to prove it to you. The best guides, and by far the best REAL mountain bikes in Cusco - full suspension, hydraulic disc brakes, etc.

My girlfriend and I booked on Gravity Peru's Backdoor Machu Picchu package and it was awesome! The riding was fantastic and the sites were epic. We felt very looked after, safe and were in brilliant company throughout the tour. Highly recommend booking a trip!

From the out set the communication and info we received was very good they replied to emails on the same day. It was very easy getting collected from Cusco and meeting our guide. He spoke great English and was good fun as well as very knowledgable about the area. We did the bikeasalt ride, this was dirt road and single track. We have done a fair bit of mountain biking in the UK before but mainly XC. This trail was manageable but still had challenging sections that you could opt to do but would't be suitable for a beginner but they do have easier trails. We stopped at the Inca site of Moray and visited the salt mines. It was very satisfying to arrive on the bikes as the coach trips from Cusco arrived.
The bikes were full sus and the brakes had been swapped to UK set up. We had full face helmets gloves and Knee/shin pads provided. Lunch was simple but nice. Our kit met us at points along the way so you could leave extra clothes etc in the vehicle for later.

All in all a great day (this was part of our honeymoon!)

I did the "mega avalanche" with Gravity Peru and it was an awesome ride however definitely not for beginners. It was a offroad downhill starting from 4000+ km altitude. It can be steep and bumpy and requires good bike control since it is a technical ride. But there are also less technical alternatives with Gravity to choose from. My guide was José Manuel who was really a cool guy and of very good service. He was patient with me and knew what he was doing. The equipment used was top notch, a full suspension bike which was very needed for that track. I recommend this tour but choose your ride wisely based on your level of experience!

What a privilege to experience Gravity Peru's Backdoor to Machu Pichu- bike/hike with overnight accommodation at Eco Quechua Lodge . Privileged also to have Salvo as our guide, a proud Quechua man, keen to share his knowledge, culture and friendship. Our group of three enjoyed the gentle downhill bike ride taking in the breathtaking scenery of The Sacred Valley area, the "exciting" drive from Santa Maria to Santa Teresa, overnight at Eco Quechua Lodge - friendly warm hospitality, great food, beautiful tree house accommodation; then the enjoyable walk to Machu Pichu along the railway line with bonus views of the Moon Temple. highly recommended

We did the asalt. The trip was really nice but wasn't mentioned as on their site. It took us 6 hours in total, instead of the 9 hours they tell on the site. Total time on the bike about 90 minutes. Paying $95 for 90 minutes biketime is way too much.
Good guide though and good information on the two sites you visit. (Moray and saltmines)
The ride is fantastic with great views.

Gravity Peru doesn't always respond to email. (When asking about paying for something elke than they write on their site)

The site tells you there is an easy and technical option. In my opinion there was only a technical option.
