This is a beautiful windy road, with a number of options on how to do it....we took the touristic "disco" open air bus which was a lot of fun. We saw a number of other people on bikes and also quad bikes. However be warned....because...More

Definitely do this route using a mountainbike (5-10 USD incl. Helmet).
During this bike-ride you will see several waterfalls and pass some restaurants.
At the end you can visit the "devils cascade" which is really worth a visit.
The road is mainly descending so don't...More
Our group rented bikes to reach the Ruta de las Cascadas, stopping along the way to have some lunch and to take a ride on a zip line. The bike ride was fun (and mostly downhill), the hike was beautiful, and the Pailon del Diablo...More
I joined a tour for 3 USD and climbed into a ‘chiva’ which is a truck fit with seats and a roof. I wore a sweatshirt which was good most of the trip, it got cool on the way back.

Hey, I did the Chivas bus tour so I'm not sure how long the bike route option would take. I'm guessing it depends on 1) your fitness 2) how may stops you make and how long you stop for. Also, if you are doing Casa de arbol are you taking a public bus there/walking/going with a tour group?
I would say you could spend the morning doing the ruta de las cascadas on bike then do the casa de arbol with a tour group in the afternoon. From what I saw going with a group is between $6- $10 and the last group leaves around 16:00. So it should be possible to do both activities in one day. Going with a tour group will take about 2 hours for casa de arbol. So will get you back in time for cenar :)
Be very careful if you going to bike ruta de las cascadas. There is no cycle lane and you share the road with motorists, buses, bikes, chivas tours and the occasional donkey. Personally I would only do it during the week (less traffic from tour groups) and in good weather (unlike the last few days here).
Either way, it's an amazing experience and bring some cash for the cable cars, canopying and odd road side snack (very delicious).
