It all started with Chile…
A few years back I traveled down there by myself with my mountain bike and one goal -- To ride new trails in some big mountains for 3 months. The mountain bike community down there welcomed me with open arms. I was lucky to ride some of the best trails in Chile and make life-long friends along the way. The experience from Chile taught me that the mountain bike community is world-wide, but also quite small with a common goal. To ride awesome trails with good people in awesome places. That is what Ride Local is all about- great trails, better company. Fostering global cultural connections through exploring local trail systems in amazing locations. Trips designed to showcase not only the best trails, but also the local communities around them. Eat and sleep at the finest local restaurants and accommodations, and ride incredible trails with awesome local guides. All at a reasonable price point. We look forward to riding with you!
