Mountain bike off-the-beaten track while exploring rural areas around PV, back roads, creeks, small country villages, and open fields. Or for those riders in top physical condition, choose more challenging options such as heading straight up the Sierra Madre mountains on old mining roads. From beginners to advanced riders, there is a tour offering designed just for you.

This Specialized Bike shop is located in the Galerias Vallarta Mall in Puerto Vallarta. You can stop by the store and inquire about joining the next informal bike tour that they organize on Saturday mornings with local cyclists and their own employees just for fun. You can also arrange to rent a mountain bike from them if you are joining in on their group’s ride. The rugged jungle and mountain trails they take are definitely not for beginners. The rides are hard, exiting and very intense.
