The Mountain Bike Guatemala Story

Fueled by a passion for exploration and sharing adventure.

My name is Brendan James – in 2008 I first had the opportunity to visit Guatemala by bike and it took my breath away. I crossed the country taking a month to get to know it’s diverse landscapes and people.

A lifelong athlete bike racer In 2012 I moved to the country and fell in love with Mountain Biking all over again. I decided to stay.
