fly into Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Hit the local bike shop or re-assemble your bike. Don’t want to bring your own, no worries – we’ve got a steed or two to loan you. Get a quick ride in and a good night’s rest.
Climb El Cimmarón just outside of Tegucigalpa. Experience an epic climb and a variety of technical single-tracks trails in the semi-arid mountains. Elevation 3,500 feet.
Bike and hike La Tigra National Park. There’s some tight single-track through the alpine forests, then a rugged climb through several micro-climates to arrive at La Tigra National Park. From there, get some relief from the saddle and enjoy a hike through virgin (primary growth) cloud forest. Then, throw your tired legs back over the saddle and enjoy a good couple of hours of fast downhill.
Explore the wild state of Santa Barbara. Ride through boulder-strewn quebradas (creek-beds) and earn as much altitude as you want. The wildlife here is sure to impress. Iguanas, snakes, deer, you name it. Then cool off beneath a pristine waterfall. If you’re lucky, mid-ride you’ll get a cool down from a seasonal downpour that will up the ante on the technical. Add water – yep, you got mud. From here, you will load up the 4×4 and head to the town of Copan Ruins. Enjoy an evening in the quaint colonial town.
Visit the Mayan Ruins at Copan. Then in the afternoon, put a 100 kilometers in the bank and ride to a thermal river and enjoy a meal on the banks of the river. Pile in the rig and head to the hotel.
You decide. All day ride through Copan? Bike through the mountains where the Spanish plundered gold and silver. Or head to the beach to snorkel and chillax.
