We are looking for volunteers to
help build the first ever
bike trails in
Naguabo, Puerto Rico. The mountain bike trails
are part of a larger ecotourism/
organic farming project at our farm in La
Cuchilla, Rio Blanco. Out of towners will be accomadated
with food and housing if necessary!!
To deal with this terrible
recession, buy software and equipment for this site, I am
building a Photo Gallery to sell some photos. I have
some photos of the Medalla Light (Rincón 09), approximately 150.
The main gallery portal is ready, we still
missing the selling system and shipping materials (it takes
lot longer than expected) !

Even though my vacations were larger than expected, or larger that
I did like, it doesn’t means that I forgot you or the website.
I'd been riding more than usual, which is good for my mental
health. But my hands and fingers kept itching because I haven’t
updated the site. I had some free time and filmed a couple of
videos (my latest craze) and upload them in YouTube. For today
standards my video camera is monster big, very old, analog and
there is no way to hang it in my helmet. I tried to film holding
it in my hands... but I filmed lots of sky or dirt, not much of
The main purpose of the videos is to show
the trails, which by the way can be very boring for the
adrenaline junkies. I have to clarify that by using the wide
angle, the downhills looked flat and 30 mph drops looks like 5
mph. Just see the video of Rincón
and ask your friends that had ridden it.

Things to Come!
I will be updating this web slowly this and next months.
I am really busy at work right now! But I am leaving you
with a glimpse
of the things to come (very slowly)!
Ramey Base Trail ... 8th Hole!
(Has a new killer DH at the trail head!)
good the New Year, just 14 miles in 3 hours! ... just rained
the day before
and everything, EVERYTHING was covered with MUD in Cabo
Sunday January 14, 2007. From left to right;
Wendel, Gregorio, Daniel, yours truly, Jesús and Daric.
Carlos and Iván... fed up with the MUD, had departed
Here we met Mr. Miguel Acosta Marini who generously send
more hill to go!
the spirits are low,
when the day appears dark,
when work becomes monotonous,
when hope hardly seems worth having,
just mount a bicycle and go out
for a spin down the road,
without thought on anything
but the ride you are taking.
Sir Arthur Connan Doyle, 1896.
This small Island of 100 x 35 miles is bathed in the south by the Caribbean Sea,
and by the Atlantic Ocean in the north. Island of diverse topography and tropical
climate, it's ideal to practice MTB all year round!
Its small size guarantees
to find gorgeous landscapes in very short distances. You can
all kind of trails in the dry forests of the south, karst region
on the north
and very humid forest in the central mountain range!
Stop day dreaming!
Come and visit us!
If you decide to take a MTB vacation here, when you arrive you must
the city of el Conquistador Juan Ponce de León, The Old San Juan.
You will see that is much
more than 500+ years old city. Just pick a Map because from there is just a half
an hour road
trip to Monagas Park in
Bayamón. At less than a couple of hours
driving are trails in Salinas,
or Aguadilla. If adventure is your middle name you can reach Cabo Rojo and enjoy
all the trails,
and landscapes all this place and the others have to offer. They are nice
around the Big Island, Culebra and Vieques
and you can find very easy
a nice car rental (may I suggest a Jeep
with A/C). But if you love
MTBiking and Surfing nothing beats Rincón,
Beach and the ones at the town of Isabela are very nice alternatives
(all are less than half an hour away from each other).
Just Come and Visit Us!
A cyclist needs only two
tools in life: WD-40 and duct tape.

If it moves and it shouldn't, use duct tape."
The purpose of this web is to share information, trails, links and
ideas, about the sport of MTB in Puerto Rico. The topography of
this Island is more than for this kind of activity. But!!!! It's not easy to find a
nice and safe trail to do MTBiking! Most of the sites that describe the trails at the do so very superficially and
doesn't provide important information. For example, key information like
were to park, were is the detours, trail description and type of forest. Because of that
only the Locals or the very entrepreneur MTB riders enjoy those trails!
Is because of this that I will dedicate my main effort to gather information about our trails. This also gives me a good excuse to visit places
that I had no plans to visit, at least during this lifetime.
For example people say that Cambalache is one of the best trails in the
Island, and that in Florida (the Town) there is a short but very good trail and in Salinas there is
a route that was used in the Pan American Games. I am only looking
for a good excuse, the right moment and to convince a couple of Crazy
Guys like me to go!
But while I am (still) waiting for the right moment, I will add themes related to MTBiking... while I learn! There is a lot to learn and I guess that there are a lot of MTBikers that have more or less 3 years of experience like me (I have 1600 miles in two years and a half).
I will be translating the sections done
(from Spanish to English) soon. Perhaps,
in the future (a very distant future) this will help a to the local economy with this kind of new tourism. I like to
daydream lot, but in my mind is always present the case of Fruita
Colorado. A small town whose economy depended of a factory ... that closed! But the wilderness of the place was gorgeous. They developed a system of trails and
town economy is blooming thanks to MTB tourism! In case you want to see what I am talking about you should visit this site (Pete Fangerlin). You will be able to enjoy videos of
Fruita's trails and from other places (ahhh... this videos are 10 mb or larger, so I recommend a broadband or lots of patience!
