Itinerary
Meet at the Shop at 8:00 am where you can purchase any riding gear, and fill up your water bottles. After making sure everyone has everything they need, we load bags and bodies into our vehicle and set out. It is about a two-and-a-half hour drive to Panajachel. We stop on the road for a coffee or bathroom break at a nice road stop restaurant near Tecpn (breakfast is not included).
Upon arrival, we will unload and fit you to your mountain bikes. We will give instructions on how to ride, how to do it safely and you will have a chance to ask questions and apply sunscreen.
A fast country road downhill section brings us to our first bit of trail. You will ride on the old road to the lake, a remote area with not another tourist in site. The route is a mixture of backcountry dirt roads and jeep tracks as well as nice tight technical single track climbs and descents. It is a landscape of rolling pine forests, intermixed with local agricultural plots of corn, beans, and squash. After a couple hours riding, you will have a 2 km climb to El Mirador high above Lake Atitln where your guide will serve a healthy and well-deserved fresh picnic lunch while you take in the spectacular view of the Lake.
After lunch, you will continue cross-country and downhill on the technical cliff-side trail that traverses some 2000 vertical feet (625 meters) above the Lake. The day is topped off on some of Guatemalas best single track, from the rim of the vast caldera down to Santa Catarina Palop, finishing with an awesome staircase into this lakeside Mayan village.
You will have time to recover with a swim or explore the small village in search of souvenirs while your guide loads the bikes. After a while, you board the transport and head back to Antigua arriving around sunset.
