We offer no-frills guided, self supported TOURS of the Pacific coast, the Sierra Madre mountains, the Yucatan peninsula, and the southern states of Chiapas, Tabasco and Oaxaca.Eating and sleeping where the locals do, we go inn-to-inn and sometimes have the option of camping on the beach or in the mountains. Our small groups are limited to 8 to 10 cyclists, plus your 2 friendly, fun and knowledgeable Mexican and Canadian guides.Tours last for 1 to 4 weeks, run between November and July and range in difficulty from lite to regular to challenge.
We start and end this regular difficulty tour in Mérida. We will visit the major Mayan ruins including Chichén Itzá, Ek Balam and Cobá as well as some of the lesser known but important sites such as Mayapan, visit many cenotes, and cycle on lesser travelled roads. Colonial cities and towns like Valladolid, Izamal and Tizimin are a pleasure to spend some time in and finally we visit the rustic gulf coast, cycling between the sea and lagoons with a prevailing tailwind at our backs.
