Mountain bike and hike in an around the East Cape in Baja California Sur, Mexico.
In conjunction with Vela Resorts, specialist mountain bike tour operator from Bend, Oregon, COG WILD regularly co-ordinate trips to the Baja peninsular.
Over the past several years the Vela Baja centre for Windsurf/Kiteboarding and Mountain Biking has been developing a network of challenging and exciting, predominantly single track trails around the quaint Mexican village of Los Barriles which is sited on the Sea of Cortez in the East Cape around 45mins from San jose Del Cabo international airport.
The scenery is breathtaking unspoilt natural mountainous desert with spectacular views over natural "Arroyos" (dry river beds that only flood in rare hurricanes) with slot canyons and natural hot springs abounding.
Winter temperatures are mild and dry with comfortably calm mornings and warm windy afternoons. Most rides start early (around 7:30 am ) leaving ample time to enjoy the windsports in the afternoons.
Most of the rides have views over the Sea of Cortez which is abundant with marine life with frequent sightings of wales, dolphins and sea lions as well as excellent sports fishing for tuna, dorado and marlin.
