On our Adventurous Rides, you'll step out of your comfort zone a little bit, perhaps with foreign languages, semi-remote areas, new cultures and cultural experiences, and/or other experiences that are a little bit unfamiliar to 'Western'-country Riders. If you're looking for something a little more exotic, check out our 'Out There' Rides, or if you prefer the familiar, check out our 'Familiar' Rides.
Feeling the winter blahs?
We've got just the ticket for a recharge - an adventure for mind, body and soul!
Located on a spectacular private beach on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, this fantastic retreat combines exciting mountain bike riding with invigorating and relaxing yoga.
Imagine watching the sun rise while being lulled by the sounds of crashing waves in the midst of a morning yoga session. Shortly after a delicious breakfast, you're being thrilled by smooth, flowy riding in the beautiful, lush Sierra Madre mountain range. You're immersed in history and culture in the picture-perfect town of Mascota, and you plunge into the emerald blue waters of the Marietas Islands to swim alongside dolphins, sea turtles and manta rays. Adventure, exploration and relaxation - you really can have it all!
We'll ride doubletrack trails along scenic coastlines, with short to medium climbs on moderately challenging terrain. Included are 4 outdoor yoga sessions, covering a variety of styles and appropriate to the time of day (e.g. invigorating sessions at sunrise, and more relaxing sessions at sunset) and day's activities.
Safety in Mexico
Although the drug trade has led to instability and major violence along the U.S./Mexico border, violent or organized crime is not a concern in this part of Mexico: the problems are mainly restricted to the areas near the border. Sayulita and Mascota, where we spend most of the trip, are two of the most peaceful places anywhere in Mexico (or the world, for that matter).
We work with local guides who are keenly aware of any issues that might affect our groups' safety - rest assured that the safety of our clients is of paramount importance to us and we would never do anything that would compromise it.
