What to expect?
You are about to immerse yourself in the Mountain Bike adventure of a lifetime in the southeast of Mexico. Oaxaca City is located in the region of the Central Valleys, at 1500 m above sea-level. The city of Oaxaca is well recognized for its amazing hospitality, colorful streets that surround the XVI century downtown, where besides finding great and warm weather, you will find many delicious restaurants, bars, museums, galleries, markets and more.
Right above the city, we have one of the eight regions that compose Oaxaca, known as the "Sierra Norte". This is where the two-wheeled experience will take you to ride amazing singletrack! Those trails were used by the Zapotec culture to connect different mountain communities alongside the mountain system and to other regions. These trails drop in at up to 3000 m above sea-level and are 7-11 km-long, with more than 900 m of elevation loss per trail. Most of the rides are shuttle-assisted, but be ready to pedal short transfers in the forest. Or why not go for a 25 km-long pedal expedition with an amazing descent as a reward? The variety of terrain that the Northern Sierra of Oaxaca has to offer is one of the reasons that make this place unique for mountain biking. Start in a deep pine tree forest with amazing loamy dirt to then transition, still on the same trail, into short brush trees and rocky loose soil.
Be ready to ride around 30 km of amazing singletrack and drop more than 2500 m off elevation every day. We are always down for the bonus lap for those who have some gas left in the tank.
Our rides are designed to accommodate different riders' levels in terms of skills and fitness. We also provide amazing coaching programs and skill clinics for those who want to improve their riding in different terrain. Learn more about these programs and riding levels here.
Our local knowledge will take you to all the non-touristy and more authentic cultural and culinary spots, where you will be able to dive into the Mexican lifestyle and enjoy some of the best dishes and drinks in and out of Oaxaca city.
This experience is designed by the Transierra Norte head team which will be part of the guiding team as well. Learn more about our upcoming trips or plan a private custom trip for you and your friends.
