Ecuador Freedom Bike Rental announced a new guided motorcycle excursion to take adventure motorcyclists to the top Inca and cultural sites in Ecuador.

Ecuador Freedom Bike Rental and Motorcycle Tours has announced that they have expanded their offering of guided motorcycle adventures to include a new 10-day adventure called Inca Roads.

This all-inclusive tour will explore cultural and historical sites of the ancient Incan Empire while riding the best paved motorcycle roads in South America. Inca Roads will have its first departure on October 10, 2014 with other dates set in 2015.

The Inca reigned over South America before the arrival of the Spanish and were some of the best road builders in history. When their empire expanded from Peru into Ecuador in the early 1500’s, they built impressive cities, fortresses, burial grounds and temples connected by an extensive system of paved roads and suspension bridges known as the “Qhapaq Nan”.

These roads were of such high quality that large stretches of them are still intact and last month were awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. The Qhapaq Nan road system was a unique achievement of engineering skills as it passed through varied geographical terrains, including the snow-capped mountain ranges of the Andes, rainforests, fertile valleys and stark deserts.

In recent years Ecuador has rivaled the Incan Empire in road building. The country has the highest investment of GDP in road construction in all of the Americas and this has resulted in the creation of thousands of miles of newly paved and properly cambered roads.

This new motorcycle adventure begins in the second Inca capital city of Quito, high in the Andes Mountains. It ventures deep into the Amazon jungle, visits the colorful indigenous markets in Otavalo, zigzags up a mountain aboard one of the steepest railways in the world, and introduces the colonial city of Cuenca. It even offers an opportunity for a fishing expedition in the Amazon.

Following portions of the Qhapaq Nan, riders will visit the Inca Solar Temple at Ingapirca and small villages where the Inca language, Kichwa, is still spoken. However, above all, this adventure is about panoramic views of spectacular landscapes seen while riding the newly-paved roads of Ecuador.

“Our customers have told us that we provide the perfect balance of excellent riding with interesting off-bike activities. We are proud to introduce this new tour which is cohesive with this philosophy,” stated Court Rand, owner of Ecuador Freedom Bike Rental. “We are confident this excursion will provide an unrivaled experience for both new and returning customers.”
