Greet your team of expert guides at a central La Paz location and climb aboard an air-conditioned vehicle for the hour-long ride to La Cumbre, a place whose name translates as ‘the summit’. On arrival, disembark and absorb the spectacular surroundings as your guide provides an in-depth safety briefing. Capture photographs of the low-slung clouds and forest-smothered mountains before jumping onto your bike and embarking on the ride of your life. 
Begin your death-defying descent of a serpentine road termed Camino de la Muerte, or Death Road, by Bolivian locals. Enjoy the adrenaline surges as your soar down a road christened the world’s most dangerous by numerous organizations; feel the wind in your hair and the frantic race of your heart as you descend 11,800 feet (3,600 meters) downhill. 
Stop intermittently along the way to revitalize with water and snacks and to capture photographs of the dramatic scenery. Enter the subtropics of the dense Amazonian jungle and commence the most difficult part of the ride; avert your gaze from the sheer drops of 3,300 feet (1,000 meters), beside which there appears to be little path, and focus on the refreshing mist coming from waterfalls on your right. 
Arrive at the village of Yolosa and return to the safety of a main road for the smooth ride to La Senda Verde Ecotourism Resort. Revitalize with a steaming shower or plunge into the cool waters of the swimming pool, and then appease your appetite with a hearty pasta buffet. Observe a colorful tableau of rescued wildlife and take in the spectacular jungle scenery as you rest aching muscles. 
Return to the minivan for the scenic drive back to La Paz after relaxing thoroughly. Opt to stay over night in La Senda Verde or venture to Coroico, a beautiful town surrounded by the verdant splendor of the jungle.

Don't miss out on this. The group takes good care for your safety. Make sure to bring some cash so you can go ziplining over the amazon!

Weeks before the tour I was contacted. A confirmation was required. A strange request as I had already paid the tour in full. I was instructed to show up with a copy of my pasport. I still do not know what that was good for. Emphasis was put on punctuality. Approximately ten minutes past departure time a fellow showed up in the tiny cafe, the meeting point. He did not introduce himself. He turned out to be one of the two guides. The tour was delayed by one hour. The bus was uncomfortable, no seat belts. That is utterly irresponsible in the dangerous traffic in Bolivia. The first mentioned guide was in charge. And he seemed to like it, even to the point of demanding good rewiews of the tour or none. Introducing himself and the others he excluded one of the participants. Keeping people in line was obviously important. Using derogatory remarks to that end is not acceptable behaviour. Neither is unmoderated circumstances taken into account bear drinking before the tour is over. Both guides seemed to know their bicycle-ology, checking the condition of the bikes. The bikes were suberb, great tools. All the other equipment was very satisfactory. The guides were helpful and politely instructive in finding the gear that fitted best. The ride itself was fantastic, too many stops though and repeatedly drawing attention to the fact that the road was windy and uneven was rather tidious. Everyone knew that. I felt my life more endangered in the bus on the roads than on the marvellous bike on the Death Road itself. The sandwich handed out in tne bus was dry as a dessert and untasty. The food served at the animal refugee was okey, the glass of cold bear was a delight as were the showers. The meeting point seemed to be the natural drop off point too. The guide disagreed. The participants were dropped of in the middle of the extremely chaotic city, La Paz, where the tour operator found it convenient.

This was an amazing day. Our guide Neil was great, he was friendly, he gave us warnings when their were obstacles in the road, and he was very clear in his safety instructions. The bikes we had were really good, and were clearly better than other groups we saw. The meal at the end was pretty good, and the hot showers were great. This was the highlight of Bolivia for my wife and I, and was much better than a similar bike ride we took in Peru.

This tour, with Gravity La Paz was amazing! Our guide Noel was fantastic a really nice guy and the perfect combination of fun and professional which is important considering the potential safety hazards of this activity. The bike was in good condition and appropriate for the ride, the optional safety gear gloves, pants and jacket were much appreciated and the compulsory helmet properly fitted. Any assistance required was given including bike repairs for flat tyres and medical attention. Our bus driver Willy was awesome, who followed us as the safety vehicle the whole way down and then took us back up Death Road in the dark afterwards! The snacks and lunch provided were great and plenty of water was available to refill bottles. The ride itself was amazing - the scenery incredible and the degree of difficulty moderately challenging however the potential consequences quite serious. I would definitely suggest that to enjoy this experience to the fullest, participants should be fairly familiar with and confident on a bike. An excellent Bolivian adventure!
