Reviewed by: Rick Dukes , from Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA

Summary:
I took four rides of four hours each in the valley. The routes were 15% asphalt, 70% dirt road, and 15% single track. The dirt roads were of two types: rural thoroughfares between villages (pueblos) and small agricultural roads that serviced fields of corn, marigolds, agave, and other crops. Most of the terrain was gently rolling. We went through many small villages that I would never have seen on my own. The valley seems to offer almost unlimitled possibilities of different routes. Most of the routes are tolerant of different ability levels, but the weather can be warm. The valley is surrounded by mountains, many of which rise steeply from the valley. Single track laces most of the mountains, but almost none of it has been ridden yet! Some trails will turn out to be hike-a-bike. We were on one of these when a local guy passed us on his burro! I'm sure that other single-track trails will turn out to be technically demanding but rideable for advanced and expert riders.

Recommended Route:
Begin at Biciletas Bravo in the city of Oaxaca (e-mail:roger@spersaoaxaca.com.mx). By car, they well take you the start of one of several rides that start and finish at San Francisco Lachigolo in the beautiful valley 20 minutes south east of Oaxaca. The cost includes the car shuttle, a good rental bike, a guide, snacks and a sandwich.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There must be thousands of square miles of unexplored terrain in the state of Oaxaca.

Yep, everything Rick says is true.
