Overview
What to Expect
Itinerary

This mountain bike tour is perfect for groups of varied skill levels.

We will shuttle 30 minutes outside Antigua through the town of Parramos and the small
village of Chirijuyu to meet our trailhead. From there we begin an introductory climb
followed by a 3km jeep track descent through coffee and avocado plantations. We will ride
smooth trails through agricultural operations and then cross the rustic town of San Andres
Itzapa. From there we will start our second climb (4km) up through the town on paved and
cobble stoned roads before entering a pine forest at 1900m (6,400ft). Crossing a small ravine
will bring us to a smooth descent and fast singletrack through pine trees. This will exit into
the plains of Parramos crossing fields of corn, fruit, beans and greenhouses as you wind
along agricultural singletrack. The final descent follows 500+ year old trails that have been
eroded into tunnels of tight twisty fun. Exit in the town of Pastores and cycle the gradual
paved downhill back to Antigua!
