returns in 2017 with an adventure travel trip to Guatemala in partnership with Backshop Bicycle Travel Supply
coming October 20-27, 2017. This exclusive experience combines the expertise of Vida coaches, local guides, and the rich natural resources that Guatemala has to offer, to create an unforgettable mountain bike experience, catered for the women of Vida.
“Traveling to Guatemala last summer was the most incredible and diverse place I have ever mountain biked— from the lush jungles and thick vines, to crossing over volcanic remains, to descending towards the emerald blue waters of Lago Atitlan,” said Brittany Greer, Vida MTB Series coach
and one of your guides to Vida Adventures in Guatemala. “I am excited to return and share my experiences with women who want to explore a new corner of the world with all of the finest accruements of guided riding.”
Building on the overwhelming success of the Vida MTB Series, parent company Vida Events, Inc. launched a luxury mountain biking travel operation exclusively for women in 2015. Vida Adventures is a mission-driven coalition of adventurous spirits dedicated to creating experiences that combine riding in the most beautiful destinations in the world with inspirational guiding. Their purpose is to offer an opportunity for women to connect with each other, with themselves, and develop a deeper sense of confidence and appreciation for riding in the mountains and exploring new destinations.Photo Credit // Ian Fohrman
“The adventurous spirit has always been alive within Vida, and our goal is to foster this with meaningful experiences that leave a long-lasting impression,” said Sarah Rawley, president of Vida Events, Inc. “Backshop Bike’s proven track record of specializing in adventure tour operations in Central America, and Vida's incredible coaches who understand the motivations and desires of our clients are the perfect combinations to work together to facilitate a trip of a lifetime.”
Known for it’s “eternal spring” climate and volcano-formed landscape, Antigua, Guatemala is a mountain biker’s dream come true. Epic rides can be found in all directions. Lung busting climbs, technical descents, and fast rolling singletrack sections are all part of the experience. Since the 1990s, Antigua’s cobblestone paved streets have drawn mountain bikers from Guatemala and around the world to create a unique destination for cycling tourists. While in Antigua, Backshop clients are immersed in an environment inspired by culture, language, and history.Photo Credit // Ian Fohrman
“If you love your morning coffee, say no more. Every day starts with freshly brewed coffee straight from the source,” Greer said. “Descending through farms and coffee plantations, and meandering through the narrow cobblestone alleys and sampling the most amazing corn dishes from side street vendors, are just a few views into the preserved culture and history of Central America.”
The trip has the capacity for up to eight participants and will operate in a coach-to-participant ratio of 1-to-4. The cost of $2,250 per person includes seven nights’ accommodations, all meals, in-country transportation, fully qualified and experienced mountain bike guides and coaches. The price excludes flights to/from Guatemala, travel insurance, beverages and cycling equipment.
