Backshop Bikes offers custom bike trips, shuttles, rentals and consulting services.

Testimonials

Rider Feedback

 

Thank you so much again for the opportunity to come mountain biking in Guatemala with Backshop. It has all the right components; adventure, travel, great food/drink, and most importantly, EPIC trails that will keep riders coming back time and time again! I'm already yearning for more!

— Brittany Greer, athlete/coach, Yeti Cycles/Vida MTB Series


 
 
Wild and amazing riding. We ripped single track through corn fields, through little jungle mountain towns and roads through bustling villages. We watched the sun set behind an active volcano spewing red molten lava, visible from dozens of miles away as lightning struck the top of the volcano. Also, the coffee is awesome!

Awesome riding in and around Antigua, Guatemala. The Backshop crew delivered the goods! It was amazing to spin the legs on cobble stone roads and through farm lands while interacting with the local people. This place is so colorful and full of life, it’s an honor to take it all in.

It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.
— Ernest Hemingway
