Please Note: The dates of December 10, 2007 until March 1, 2008 are rainy season in Bolivia, and we do NOT encourage people to do The World's Most Dangerous Road ride during this time. To put it simply, we believe the risks are slightly higher, and that the experience is not as enjoyable due to the very high probability of thick cloud, torrential rain during most of the day, freezing snow at the top, tons of mud, etc. However, if you absolutely MUST do it, then for those exact reasons, Gravity has set up a super-duper, reinforced, masochists-only package for the rainy season to minimize risk and improve comfort and safety.

This rainy season package has a whole lot of very important extras to deal with the frequently brutal conditions, to make it safer, and to make it as comfortable and fun as possible. These extras include more warm clothing and wet weather gear, kits for the support vehicles to deal with landslides, more guides, smaller groups, etc., etc. There’s even a SPECIAL-EDITION FREE T-SHIRT to show how crazy you are. This, plus the destruction to the bikes in these conditions and the extra maintenance needed, is why the cost is nominally higher than during the normal season. Click here to check out the Rainy Season schedule and find a trip that still has space.

During the normal season we are happy to have all levels of riders on the ride; over the rainy season, however, we discourage anyone who is nervous, scared, unfit or a beginner. It is going to be tougher than ever, rougher and scarier, and the group cannot spend too much time hanging around for really slow people (they’ll freeze and get hypothermia while they’re waiting!), so slow riders will be put in the bus for some sections to save the rest of the group.
