Overview

The ride starts and ends at Puerto Vallarta's (PV) EcoRide Mexico bike rental/tour shop in PV's Gringo Gulch. It features a long climb along rustic dirt and cobbled roads. The first half of the this ride follows the pristine Cuale River.

Need to Know

  1. The EcoRide bike shop at the start point offers water, English-language advice and trail knowledge, mechanical support, and a guide service, if interested.
  2. You can get water, beer, or other drinks at a number of small stores at the base of the climb and at the summit. Bring cash.
  3. Recommend a full-suspension bike. The cobbles can be brutal on a hardtail bike, especially during the fast descent.

Description

This ride starts and ends in Gringo Gulch area of PV. Within the first mile, you'll see the Cuale River on your right. Continue to follow this route along cobbled roads for the next 3.5 miles/5 km. When the road forks, go left and descend briefly to a concrete bridge that crosses over the Cuale. From this point forward, the road climbs almost uninterrupted to El Jorullo.

At El Jorullo (~18km), most of the serious climbing is done. To reach San Pedro, however, continue along the road to the ~19km point, where you need to stay left to complete the ride to San Pedro.

Great Rainy Season Route.
