“A phenomenal experience.”
I didn't really know what to expect going in to the trip - I just went in excited about a new adventure. Backshop delivered a phenomenal experience. It was a life changing trip for me riding the rowdy trails and seeing all the people, cities, sights.

“Made new friends and epic memories!”
Such a fun week riding bikes with a truly top notch crew in and around the beautiful Antigua, Guatemala. We rode some awesome single track through farmland, down volcanoes, across mountains, and through the city. We took a few bamboo hits to the face and pulled some spiders from our hair, but always kept riding with a smile. Thankful to leave having made new friends and epic memories.

“Backshop crew delivered the goods!”
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.

“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. Wild and amazing first day riding bikes in Guatemala. Also, the coffee is awesome!
