Though mountain biking in Argentina is only in its infancy, the hiking trails which allow mountain bikes, and vast network of fully dialed and manned alpine huts are far superior than anything in North America. This may be due to a lot of things, but mostly, I believe it's due to the fact that the people in Argentina live to live, and not for the pursuit of the buck.
Hanging out with our guides Martin "Cepi" Raffo, Gonzalo Serenelli and Bojan "BOA" Magister it was evident that these guys have it good...maybe even better than us. Thanks boys for sharing and thank you Argentina.
Starting up the trail to Mount Tronador.
Arriving at the Refugio at the base of Mount Tronador we had no idea of the magnitude of the area because the last two hours of the hike-a-bike we were completely encompassed by the clouds.
What took a whole day going up, only took about two hours coming down.
Day six Bariloche local trail scenery.
That little building was the shuttle drop point for day seven...three times.
Good morning...time to get up and go to work.
The locals were stoked to host us on their local bike trails around Bariloche on our final day.
Is this Margus' best Photo Epic yet? Do you want to ride in Argentina?
