A Day in Peru – Canyon del Pato – Video

A Day in Peru

This video shows a complete day on the bike from dawn til dusk as we start the day with a puncture, then join our fellow motorcyclists James and Glen and tackle the Canyon del Plato between Trujillo and Huaraz in the Andes.

This day was a very memorable day and some of the best riding we have done for a long long time.

Riding through desert landscapes, arid river passes, remote mountain villages and the best of all the Canyon. This road featured 40 tunnels, 8 hours of riding, waterfalls, old derelict coal mines, lots of oncoming traffic (even in tunnels) and semi passable bridges.

By the way, the rough road finishes with a double rainbow, heavy rain and then we finally find a hotel room on this particular day about 8.30pm.

The following day we find that the puncture we repaired did not hold together very well so we head for a tyre repair guy to do a better job than we did.

Ramble on by Led Zeppelin definitely does the day justice.

  1. Best video so far as far as scenery, what an amazing terrain, really nice, wish I was there too. Love the ruggedness, the tunnels and wooden bridges. I posted a link on my Google+ account and on my Facebook account. Nick, include Ivanka on all the videos, her laugh is the best part, have fun and keep posting, :-)
