Mountain Biking in Guatemala

As I’ve said before, cycling is the new trend in Guatemala. There are dozens of cycling events every week.
Today I joined a small group of riders and they took me through some rural roads of the province of Sacatepéquez, near La Antigua Guatemala.
Guatemala has an amazing terrain for this sport, there are hundreds of mountain passes and roads made and used by campesinos and they are great for mountain bikes! And the view and clean air is a plus.
Oh, and something that would only happen in Guatemala; this is the only place in the world where you can go mountain biking on one of these campesino’s dirt roads and find an ice cream truck (pickup), announcing ice cream through the loud speakers.
