Your journey, your reminder
This is a short introduction to perk 8. To give some insight in what the journey will be like. It is a one month journey scheduled for the summer of 2021. There’s a framework but it’s always open, ready to adapt to the (local) circumstances. Flexible, flow and acceptance are key words.
Mark has experience with groups, also when they don’t know what is coming (“the unknown”). However, he will always try to find the right balance between information, surprise, intensity, and safety. In this journey you will get a personal preparation 2 months in advance if you desire. We recommend it since it can help both mentally as physically for the adventurous cycling itself and for the optional (Ayahuasca) ceremony you can participate in.
Mark has worked as a guide in Peru with groups and cycled through the country before. For logistical issues he works with a Peru / Dutch tour agency that has worked with thousands of people and groups for over 20 years. They also own a small hotel where you will spend the first one or two nights (depending on your arrival). This will be your second contact at the spot, also if you wish to extend your trip and have logistics organised.
Your journey will be documented and will be presented as a monthly Reminder that comes with our Cycledelic Coffee. Also, you will become a chapter in the final book. If you want to stay anonymous – we respect that obviously.

We keep the right to deny possible backers from participation and reimburse their contribution. It has never happened but safety comes first. A trip like this should not be underestimated and we only cycle with people who are fully motivated and aware of this.
Depending on how things will evolve we will personally connect and update. The journey is scheduled for the summer of 2021 (July 1st) but is flexible and can be rescheduled depending on local and international circumstances and border crossings.
