Guatemala has some pretty serious #terrain .: 14,000ft volcanoes – numerous ecosystems – remote mountain ranges – complex canyons and an ancient network of Mayan footpaths that connect it all together.
From a #mountainbike perspective it can be a challenge – the climbs are long, the grades are insane but with a little creativity you can tie together 3000 – 8000ft downhills gaining a unique perspective on Guatemalan landscape and culture like very few can.
