Bicicletas Pedro Martínez information
This friendly team headed by Mexican Olympic cyclist Pedro Martínez offers mostly off-road rides (and some great day walks) amid some of Oaxaca state’s best scenery. Van support cuts out the less interesting bits and hardest climbs. The shortest options are half-day or full-day rides in the Valle de Tlacolula (full day per person for groups of two/four M$1500/1350).
The two-day ‘Cascadas y Mangos’ jaunt (per person for two/four people M$3800/3400) runs from Nochixtlán to spectacular Santiago Apoala, then across the scenic Tehuacán-Cuicatlán biosphere reserve. The four-day Oaxaca–Puerto Escondido route (M$5800 to M$6500 per person) takes you right down through the mountains to the Pacific coast.
