The best circuits

 

Mountain bike in Bariloche

Pedaling and pedaling. Over paved and dirt roads. Under the rain or the blazing sun. With effort, experience with the five senses Bariloche’s famous landscapes.
Hundreds of people get to this city just to get that feeling. They unload their bikes from buses or planes and start their touring amid the mountain range landscapes. Mountain bike is undoubtedly one of the most popular activities in the region.

Of course, there is something about some little paths in Bariloche that makes them seem quite tempting for bicycle adventurers at first sight. But you never know where a hidden slope may be waiting or where the trail may suddenly end.

This is why there are certain issues that every biker should consider, so the adventure does not turn into a bad experience. For instance, the level of difficulty of a certain circuit. In the mountain range, there are trails with different levels of difficulty: easy, intermediate, advanced and expert. The easy circuits are suitable for experienced beginners, with the necessary training and experience to cover the indicated distance. The intermediate trails can be followed by intermediate cyclists, very good at handling their bikes in paths, and with enough training to ride uphill along steep and sustained slopes for long stretches. Most difficult circuits should be only for expert cyclists, very skilled at handling the bicycle on all kinds of surfaces.

Expert circuits are those on uneven surfaces, with very steep and sustained uphill slopes, dangerous descents, orientation difficulties, time restrictions or tracks that are hard to ride on.
The following are the best circuits of the area, their grade of difficulty and their length in kilometers being expressed below. These circuits have been extracted from a book published by true experts on this subject: the “Veteranos Biónicos” (bionic veterans) from Bariloche.
