Cog Wild's Baja, Mexico mountain bike tour in the La Ventana and Los Barrilles areas surpassed our expectations in every conceivable way.

First and foremost, our guides - Eugene and Sue, truly made the trip was it was - one of our best yet! Their attention to detail, local knowledge, established relationships in the two regions, route/trail selection, amazingly positive attitudes and incredible spirits made the trip an adventurer's delight. How they were able to keep 10 eager mountain bikers happy at all times is beyond me. We would follow them anywhere :)

Sara was also a great help with our trip pre-planning. She was very responsive and always timely with her communications.

We had such a blast that we're already looking forward to next year.

This mountain biking trip with Cog Wild in Baja, California Sur was an absolute winner!

The logistics of the trip went off without a hitch. From the pre-ride information from the Cog Wild office to Eugene (our guide) meeting us at the airport.

Eugene was a wonderful guide and riding partner for the 5 days. It was great that Eugene was as enthusiastic about riding all the time as we were. His local knowledge, professionalism, organizational skills and always being helpful with questions was A+.

What made this trip fantastic:
1. The terrain and the beauty of the Baja, California, Sur.
2. The authentic Mexican towns of La Ventana and Los Barriles.
3. The accommodations – seaside sweet!
4. Ride in the morning (7:30 – 11:00) and in the afternoon (3:00 – 5:00) – excellent!
a. It’s the way a mountain bike holiday should be. Lots of riding.
b. Trails were excellent and Eugene was always adjusting based on our riding abilities and wants. He picked the best trails for us.
5. Bonus ride on Tuesday from La Ventana to Los Barriles via the Cliffside road – 76K. The scenery along the Sea of Cortez was breath taking. Highly recommended if you are up for a super ride.
6. The food was outstanding. The best thing about finishing a mountain bike ride in Baja – it’s Taco time!
Thank you Cog Wild for a fantastic trip!

We had so much fun on Cog Wild's fat tire bikes in the snow on the Tumalo Falls trail with our guide Pia, that we booked again with her for the very next day for the Whoops trail. The snow was a blast and while conditions weren't great on the Whoops trail we still laughed our butts off and had a great time. Pia was awesome and patient, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time on Bend's fabulous trails with her and riding fat tire bikes!

We had an excellent time with Russ Fat tiring into Todd Lake.
I would suggest anyone do this. We started at CogWild discussing what level of riders we were or were not then shuttled up to the parking lot. We have never Fate Tire rode before and Russ made us feel like we have been doing it all our life

I've never mountain biked before, but I've always wanted to check it out. I signed up for the skills clinic, and it was awesome. Russ's coaching kept me challenged at a great pace, and was always supportive and fun. The next day, I went fat tire biking with Russ too. I had such a great time learning, and I'm stoked to get into mountain biking more. Hopefully I'll be back with Cog Wild in the Spring!
