One of the best trails in the world is threatened by a new road in Peru.

Since we first rode this trail nearly a decade ago we've been preaching that it's one of the best. Not just one of the best, but one of the best on the planet. It's called Olleros and the stats are impressive: 56 kms long, start at 3700 meters, end on the Pacific shore. 11,000 foot descent of arid goodness with sections like a pump track that lasts 15 minutes on a spectacular high-alpine ridge. Just last week we received word from our guides that a new road is being built and the trail wont be as it was. Those of you who joined us over the years and rode this one, it's now just a memory! The good news is that we're replacing the Olleros trail with another amazing called Villa Quipan...38 kms long, 9842 feet slouch at all. And as our guides tell us about Villa Quipan, "one of the most amazing trails in the Andes."
