Epic Ride Prep: The Ultimate 7-Day Motorcycle Adventure Packing Guide for Ecuador

Epic Ride Prep: The Ultimate 7-Day Motorcycle Adventure! If you’ve ever dreamed of riding through some of the most breathtaking landscapes on Earth, then you’re in for a treat. Join us as we gear up for a 7-day motorcycle adventure across the diverse terrains of Ecuador. From the high-altitude twists and turns of the Andes to the lush, green pathways of the Amazon, we’re going to experience it all. But first, let’s talk about what to pack for such an epic journey.

When you’re on the road, especially on a motorcycle, every item you carry matters. Let’s start with the essentials. First up, a reliable helmet. Safety is non-negotiable, and a good helmet can be a lifesaver. Next, a sturdy, weather-resistant motorcycle jacket and pants. These aren’t just for protection in case of a slide but also against the elements. And don’t forget the gloves and boots – they’ll keep you comfortable and protected. We do provide you with first-class items, and are included in the rental or any of our guided or self-guided tours. However, should you feel you have a favorite brand, or enjoy wearing your own gear, we encourage you to bring them along.

Ecuador’s weather can be unpredictable, so layering is key. In an Epic Ride Prep, we will need to pack lightweight, breathable clothing that can easily be layered. Include waterproof gear too, as rain showers are common, especially in the Amazon. For personal items, keep it minimal. A small, durable backpack should hold your essentials – think toiletries, a first-aid kit, and of course, sunscreen and insect repellent for those sunny days and buggy nights.


A short but comprehensive list of items to bring for The Ultimate 7-Day Motorcycle Adventure:

3 x dry fast material t-shirts
1 x cotton t-shirt (dinner and outing)
1 x dry fast material pants
2 x jeans
2 x short pants
1 x sandals
1 x sport/ comfy shoes
4 x pairs of socks
1 x warm jacket
1 x sunhat

4 x pieces of underwear
1 x shades

As for toiletries, pretty much everything can be found in Ecuador, from bandages to shaving blades or cream. Whatever you think you forgot, can be purchased here.

In the age of technology, staying connected and on the right path is easier than ever. A reliable GPS system is a must-have for navigating Ecuador’s winding roads. These, along with GPX files for your route is provided. For communication, we help you to purchase a local SIM card can keep you connected, even in the most remote areas with enough data for your whole tour.

What’s an adventure without the memories? For all you aspiring vloggers and photographers out there, don’t forget your camera gear. A durable, action camera is perfect for capturing those high-speed moments, while a good quality DSLR or mirrorless camera can capture the stunning landscapes (recommended, but not needed). And, of course, extra batteries are essential for those long shooting days. If you don’t count with any to these, we can help you with GoPro cameras for rent, along with a non-intrusive mounting base for your helmet.
Staying fueled is key on any adventure. While Ecuador offers plenty of culinary delights along the way, having some basic supplies is always a good idea. Pack lightweight, high-energy foods like nuts, dried fruits, and energy bars. You can find clean bottled water all along the way.

The bike

Last but not least, for the Epic Ride Prep, let’s talk about the bike. A well-maintained motorcycle is your best companion on this journey. Carry a basic tool kit tailored to your bike’s needs, including spare parts like tubes, and an air compressor.
