    I haven't ridden in Santiago, but those look like some cool trails. I did ride in Torres Del Paine in January and it was awesome. We rented bikes from our guide. He's exploring some other trails in the park and surrounding areas, so who knows, may have to go back down there in a few years.

    We were there when the fire was still going on, but on the other side of the park. It messed up our plans to do the W, so we only did the V and missed Glaciar Grey. I have kept in touch with our guide and he is exploring other trails with more singletrack in and around TDP. Here are my favorite pics he's sent:

    Wife and I are thinking about taking a trip to Chile in the fall (you spring?). This is definitely going in the pro category, would love to ride in any of these places.

    Well there are some , have to know where to go , otherwise it feels its just a 5 million people city ....

    All those pics that look "greener" are from southern Chile , say 600 miles south of Santiago ... there , there are thousands of places to ride !!

    Hey so I was planning on trying to make a trip down to Peru/Bolivia/Ecuador this winter December/January, and was wondering how much mtb trips would be if I were to go there and ask for a guide rather than buying one online in the states. I'm very comfortable speaking Spanish, but don't have the biggest vocabulary. Online they all run for about $2000 USD for 7-9 days. Anyone know if guiding is cheaper to do down there?

    Dunno man, This is CHILE , not Ecuador, Boliva or Peru. Chile is worlds different in geography, demographics, and most of all , a secure place to spend vacations, outdoors or bussiness. Here the institutions work and all seems to be friendly and fluid, cops are straight and everything works.

    Here's a respectable operator for biking tours :

    Cycling Tours - Patagonia Tours, Chile & Argentina Travel » Cascada Expediciones

    Mountain Bike in Atacama Desert 7 day tour, Chile bike tours | Ecotours Chile - Bike Tours, Hiking Tours, Santiago Tours, Wine Tours
