What you'll do

First as part of the warm-up to start the ascents, we will give a brief tour of the town of San Felipe del Agua, it will be approximately 15 minutes walking through its cobblestone streets and alleys which are very beautiful and picturesque. Later we will enter a mixed zone between asphalt terrain and offroad zone. This part is to be familiarized with the bicycle.
After we can climb by road or by trail depends your ability and physical condition. They are approximately 14-18 km of route between dirt road and pavement road. The landscape is very beautiful full of plants and birds.
The terrain is rocky and with some slopes and sharp curves. I will go ahead of the course and I will be on the lookout for the technical areas where I will let you know about any slope, branch or need to stop or be careful.
Depending on the level of driving we can opt for quieter and less technical areas. If you like strong emotions we can choose the more technical route and with steeper descents.
After the tour we will return to San Felipe to taste a traditional breakfast in a recognized and quality restaurant in the town of San Felipe del Agua
Other things to note
It is an experience of mountain biking, it is recommended to have an adequate physical condition and an intermediate level of mountain driving.
I will adapt to the experience of the participants

I am a lover of cycling, nature and outdoor activities. Mountain biking is one of my passions, I have been practicing it for more than 15 years. I know the paths and routes of this area of ​​Oaxaca very well since 5 years ago so I can guide you according to your level and style of driving on the trails that you like the most or adjust to your experience. In case of being a beginner, it will be a pleasure for me to show you some very practical tips so that you can face the single track safely and at the same time enjoy it. If you are an expert, it will be fun to shoot at full speed.

Where you'll be

The small town of San Felipe is one of the most beautiful areas to live in Oaxaca, it is very quiet and it has our main place of travel close by: The Mountains of the San Felipe Municipal Agency, these mountains are mostly well conserved so it is a natural landscape full of endemic flora and fauna.
The area is very fun to enjoy mountain biking
Fresh air, birdsong and some adrenaline along the way

An experience not for the faint of heart! haha Had the best time yesterday with Gerardo. I have been mountain biking before in California and even Tulum, but mountain biking in Oaxaca is a completely different experience- the terrain is no joke! I am grateful that there is an experience such as this one on Airbnb due to the fact that my fiancé was planning on participating in a different mountain bike excursion in Oaxaca that is basically for the advanced and well, this Airbnb experience made him realize that he was NOT ready for that more advanced excursion! Although Gerard did ask what level we were (we stated "intermediate"), this experience was perfect for us to see what level we actually were at, which was not quite beginner, but also not quite intermediate. Nevertheless, we made it through the more rough terrain (Gerard gives you a choice). The elevation was tough to get through especially if you are not used to the high elevation, but it was definitely worth it as the views were absolutely breathtaking! Aside from the gorgeous views, it was on hell of a cardio session which I loved! I would highly recommend:)

Very beautiful ride. Very challenging and great exercise. Such a great experience! Very sunny, not much shade, so wear and bring sunblock if you’re fair skinned. After making it down the steep rocky terraIn I fell off the bike avoiding a speed bump in town because I’m a klutz. Gerardo helped with first aid and cleaning the injuries at his home. He also brought us apples and water for the ride :)

This was an incredible, excilarating, and unforgettable experience. Gerardo was kind, thoughtful, and knew a lot about mountain biking and the area. I learned a lot of effective techniques that really helped me handle the terrain, which was challenging at parts. Gerardo was super friendly and adapted the route to my skill level. Some parts were very intense, but I felt safe and confident because of Gerardo’s instruction. The views were breathtaking, as there were parts along the way for breaks, photos, water, and snacks. I highly recommend this experience!!

Probably ended up being one of my favorite activities I did the whole time I was in Oaxaca! My friend and I love adventures, and it was so nice to mix up the city vibes and get out to the mountains. We'd both never really been on proper mountain bikes before, but were really happy we signed up for this and managed to surprise ourselves when we opted in for the trickier routes and did so successfully! Had so much fun, the scenery was amazing - and the sunset was perfect! Gerardo was a great guide! We definitely got more of a workout in than I think we were prepared for, but it was worth it :)
