Have damaged pannier and a swing arm that is off centre. We are moving though and should make Cusco by the weekend but will need to get the mechanical stuff sorted before we move on.
Doubt we will do the back door of Machu Picchu. We may ride Ollantaytambo and work from there.

OUCH! So sorry to hear this.
Care to share the details of how it happened? Some think Peru drivers are the worst. So far, I see no difference except for the swarms of mototaxis, which seem to be above any traffic protocol.
I am in Caraz. On my way to Lima by mid week. I would really like to hear about the Nasca/Cusco road, time required, hotel suggestion along the way?
I don't want too many surprises with my daughter on the back.
Thanks and good luck with your repairs.
