We start the WMDR ride at a mountain pass called La Cumbre, at an elevation of 15,400 ft. From there we descend 64 kms (40 miles) to an elevation of 3,600 ft. A descent of nearly 11,800 ft!

This picture is taken from the bus on the asphalt section of the road, before it gets crazy with over 2,000 ft. drops from the about 10 ft. wide dirt road.

We ride from a cool arid climate through cloud forest down into a hot and muggy jungle, and we end the ride at an animal refuge called La Senda Verde where we drink beer and hang out with monkeys. Just another day at the office!
