III Riviera Nayarit Guayabitos Bike Fest

March 15, 2017

The third edition of the Riviera Nayarit Guayabitos Bike Fest is preparing to head out from March 17-19, 2017. This event offers not only rides but also plenty of competition for those who like to put their mettle to the test.

“The idea behind the festival is to bring together the top disciplines in bike riding in one place: route, mountain, urban and BMX,” said event organizer Alejandro Haro. “What we’d like to see happen is for bike riders to shed their labels and come together to form a single cycling culture and community.”

It all starts on Friday at 5 p.m. with an urban ride that will pass through La Peñita de Jaltemba, Rincón de Guayabitos and Los Ayala. At the end the Federal Police will offer a chat on the topic of bikes as a means of transportation in order to address the riders’ right of way issues, mobility, rights and obligations.

On Saturday at 6 p.m. there will be two simultaneous competitions. One is a cycling route for 112 km between Tepic and Guayabitos; within this route there will be an 18 km race against the clock between the villages El Llano and Platanitos.

The other race on Saturday is a mountain bike race from Playa de Los Ayala to the Sierra de Vallejo and back, to complete 50 km. There will be a social event at the close of both races where there will be food available, live music and contests. Afterwards a BMX trial exhibition will be held around 3 p.m.

About 250 competitors and their families and friends are expected to attend. To date there are participants confirmed from León, Guadalajara, Aguascalientes, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán, Tepic and several other destinations along the Riviera Nayarit.

Registration cost is $350 pesos for riders and includes a t-shirt, snacks, mechanical support, sweeper and other services.

For registration information and questions please contact Alejandro Haro at 045 (311) 847 3640. More details at https://www.facebook.com/BikeFestNayarit/
