## Good Bike Route from Providencia / Las Condes to Panul

Panul Parque Publico is one of the few places that I know of that has
legal off-road bike trails.  But getting there from Providencia used
to be a drag - Tobalaba bike path disappears and then there's a steep,
long climb.

However, now that the Las Perdices bike path is working, there's a
much better route.  Simply head South on Las Perdices until you get to
the corner with Departamental (where the path ends).  Cross the river
(continuing South) and then take an immediate right on Ola Salas.
Follow Olga Salas round to the South and continue until it becomes a
dirt road.  After one block on the dirt road, you need to make a U to
the West: turn right on San Joaquin, descend one block and then left
(South again) on Las Perdices, then left onto Lo Canas and right onto
Las Chilcas Norte.

Follow Las Chilcas Norte past the antennae (still heading South) until
Central, where you climb left for a few metres before continuing on
Las Chilcas Sur.  That will get you to Rokas Magellanes (dual lane),
which is where you turn left to start the climb to the park - a
significantly shorter climb than most people face (so you can whizz
past them, yay).
