SORBA Exclusive Tour in Mexico

Mountain Bike Adventure and Food Tour in Oaxaca

Tour Description: Guided

This SORBA-exclusive departure features spectacular food, culture and mountain biking in the Sierra Norte of Mexico. This Mexican mountain bike adventure tour gives you the chance to explore the stunning Sierra Norte mountains, and soak up the culture and cuisine of the Zapotec people of Oaxaca.

We'll be mountain biking throughout the Sierra Norte’s 70,000 acres which are criss-crossed by ancient Zapotec foot trails and dirt tracks. These trails have been used by the local people for generations as the main route of communication between their isolated mountain villages in the heart of central Mexico.

Our home in Oaxaca will be in one of eight Zapotec villages that have come together to form an eco-tourism partnership, benefiting every community equally. You will feel right at home, with traditional home-cooked food and locally brewed Mezcal: a well-deserved reward after our fantastic days on the bike. Each day you will bike between 9-28 miles (15-45 km), as the daily routes are very flexible. 

On your Mexican mountain bike adventure tour you’ll spend a morning at Monte Albàn, the most important archaeological site in the Zapotec world, and enjoy the splendours of the world-famous Oaxacan cuisine.

In addition to all of the incredible riding, this tour will also have a focus on local cuisine and will include cooking courses, a BBQ in the mountains, a hill top breakfast, a Mezcal tasting and an unforgettable gourmet dinner on the last night in Oaxaca.
