As we ramp up travel to international destinations, let’s remember that where your dollar goes counts. Tour operator 2WheelEpix ensures this by using the ever-growing popularity of mountain biking to provide a lasting benefit for rural communities in Latin America. In this week’s Climate Win, we chat with the adventure company’s founder.
The company takes mountain bikers on multi-day tours to far-flung destinations including the Sierra Norte mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico; Ecuador’s CotoPaxi and Chimborazo volcanoes; and Peru’s Sacred Valley outside the high-altitude city of Cusco. These countries are now open to US travelers although some testing requirements and in-country curfews may be in place.
