I am a 48 year old rider, married, with 5 daughters. I am always keen to meet new people, and show them around this beautiful part of Mexico.
On one of my rides with VeloGuide, I got a flat before a good climb and Gildardo dropped back to stay with me until my tire's replaced with new tube. Then he made it very enjoyable climb by riding along and even pulled me to regroup with main pack. Bottomline, he's fun to ride with.
I had 3 rides with Gildardo, the Arroyo, Sayulita and the El Tuito, all three were amazing, Glirardo is an excellent rider, he was there with me, encouraging and guiding me all the way, giving me informations on the cities and Mexican life, it was really a nice week, thanks
I rode with Gildardo (Lalo) on the ride from Bucerias to Sayulita on January 02 with a group of 16 riders and 4 guides. I was late arriving for the ride and the group had left the Bici Bucerias shop when I arrived. I appreciated that Gildardo came back to get me and he did a great job guiding me through the early morning traffic in Bucerias and also did a great job pushing me in order to catch the main group at the first stop. Overall, he was friendly, engaging and professional. I really enjoyed the ride with Bici Bucerias and was impressed with Gildardo and all the Velo/BB guides who did a great job leading our group and ensuring everyone was accounted for and keeping a comfortable but challenging pace. Thanks to Gildardo and BB for a great ride.
I like rides with long hills which have rewarding fast down hills at the end. The routes to La Estancia and San Sebastian del Oeste have both of these and are very worthy of your time.
The ride to el Tuito is challenging but you are rewarded by climbing from the lush fishing village of Boca de Tomatlan to a pine forest, unlike anything you've seen in Mexico.
From Bucerias, a favorite is the old coastal road to Sayulita. You get to experience riding along the beautifully rugged Pacific coast of Mexico and soak up the views and salty air, before turning slightly inland and riding through a dense green jungle to the vibrant surfing town of Sayulita.
I started to ride mountain bikes many years ago. Today I am more a roadie although I still loving to have fun at mountain trails whenever I can.
I love coffe in special the Mexican Arabic espresso.
