This place is amazing. They have a world-class bike shop and very well maintained trails. I took the "big" loop and found it to be probably the best trail I've ever rode. Amazing views, a great mix of up/downs, climbs, and long down hills. The bikes were very well maintained, looked pretty much new! If you're an experienced rider, you'll... More

I ran out of steam near the top, and he kindly walked with me until I got my wind back, gave me some helpful instruction and helped celebrate reaching the summit. What... More

Great fun with an awesome fatbike! The trail center is super-nice!! I did get lost on one of the turns, ending up back at the start of the trails and has to climb back up... But great fun nonetheless! Service is great and personel was very friendly!

There is more to this shop than just board or bike rentals. We stayed at Las Catalinas and loved how Pura Vida Ride opened at 7am daily so we could get our fresh morning latte. The coffee is exceptional as well as the gelato we would enjoy in the afternoons before they closed at 5pm. We chose the multisport package... More
