What is the riding like in Guatemala?

In Guatemala we ride on ancient foot and hose paths shared by campesinos. The trails are ancient infrastructure, of the Mayan peoples and are used to this day.  The riding in Guatemala is raw, natural, and constantly changing.

No matter where you are coming from most riders need time to adjust to the riding here – and find it more challenging then anticipated.

Serious Climbing

A country shaped by volcanic activity – the mountains and roads in Guatemala are extremely steep. Most riders are surprised by the difficulty of the climbing with grades leave them searching for easier gears. Shorter, 20km rides generally take 2-3 hours. Routes here are generally up or down.

Downhills for days.

With so much elevation in the country there is incredible opportunity for long, sustained downhills mountain bike riding in Guatemala. Various micro climates mean that you can start you ride in the high alpine and finish in the tropics.
