My name is Pepe and I live and ride in the Puerto Vallarta area. I love both mountain and road cycling and I can ride at all levels. I am a bike mechanic and work at Specialized in Puerto Vallarta. Mexico has amazing cycling and culture, with so many great places to stop and see along the rides. When I'm not fixing bikes, I would love to show you around! Let's go for a ride!
I've ridden with Pepe many times. He always adjusts to the kind of ride I want to do that day. He is entertaining and very knowledgable but what I most appreciate about him is how safe I feel riding along with him. Safety is his priority. I highly recommend riding with Pepe when you visit the Puerto Vallarta/Bucerias/Sayulita area.
Pepe is the guy who will make you feel like he's your brother instantly and fun to ride with!
Pepe is the best guide you could ever ride with, he knows the roads and all the areas along the ride. He is a very professional and super nice person, when you ride with Pepe you feel like you are riding with your best friend. He talks to you and checks on you during the ride, takes you to key spots for snacks and water (coconut water as well). This is the second time my wife and I ride with Pepe and we are happy we did. We are planning on going back to the Puerto Vallarta/Bucerias area and ride with Pepe again. My wife and I highly recommend Pepe. The Veloguide service is easy and with excellent customer service. Lastly, Bucerias is a very nice place to visit, and ride bikes.
My favourite road ride is south of Puerto Vallarta to a town in the mountains called El Tuito. The ride starts along the coastal road and is beautiful. The ocean air and the views along the coast are amazing. It is very neat because you leave the jungle and reach a pine forest at the top of the climb.
I also like the ride from Bucerias to Fortuna de Vallejo. It is a quiet ride in the Mexican countryside, that is suitable for all levels.
When I am not working or guiding I like to participate in mountain bike races. I have won many races over the years in the masters category. I also work part-time as a spin instructor. If you are new to cycling I would be more than happy to give you some coaching on our ride.
