About
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!

Will is a good guide, i enjoyed his company. The bike provided was too small. With the seat raised to the max, it was too low by a couple inches and this wasn’t discovered till we were at the ride start. I assumed providing my height on the registration form would get me a bike of sufficient size to adjust the seat to the proper height.

Also, the difficulty is underrated. I can’t imagine a beginner handling the technical sections of the ride. The physical demands are also probably well beyond a beginner. The climbs would be too long and hard for a beginner because of the altitude starting at 5,000 feet and gaining about 1,000 more.

What a great morning. We drove about 30 minutes out of Antigua into the hills. David was a great guide. He helped set my bike up. I brought my own pedals. It was As much a tour as a great ride. Lots of single track downhill with stops to learn about the culture, agriculture, we even stopped at a church to see the blend of Mayan religion and the Catholic religion. We ended the ride through Antigua. I highly recommend this trip and old town.
