Mountain Bike Los Cuchumatánes – Join one of Guatemala’s oldest Group Rides
The Travesía a los Cuchumatanes is one of Guatemala’s oldest mountain bike events. This massive group ride, organized by Huehue Mountain Bike Paradise attracts mountain bikers from across the country to ascend the majestic Cuchumatánes mountains (12,000ft) from the city of Huehuetenango.
A Legendary Guatemalan Travesía
This is an organized group ride – with all the fanfare of a race but without the clock! We will be running a private tour the next day to the magical valley of Todos Santos. The travesía begins in Huehuetenango – passing past the Mayan of ruins of Zaculeu. We will follow singletrack and dirt roads through steep canyons before beginning the 7 mile switchbacking ascent that climbs to the summit of the cuchumatanes at 10,500ft. A catered asado or BBQ is provided for those who reach the top by local restaurant Casa Brava Steak house.
