Wir, zwei 60 jährige Österreicher sind diese Tour heute gefahren. Organisation 1a, der pickup stand mit Fahrrädern beladen bereit, wir fuhren 40 min auf s Land und hinauf. Guide Lukas war sehr gut englisch sprechend und erklärte viel zur Natur und zum Leben in Guatemala. Der trail war ca 3 Stunden und typisch mtx biking, sehr kurzweilig und durchaus anspruchsvoll für uns alte Knacker, die allerdings schon regelmäßig biken. Einzig eine gerissene Kette am start kostete fast eine Stunde Verzögerung, weil niemand ein reparaturglied dabei hatte.
