At the beginning of the pandemic, I found myself stuck in Oaxaca, Mexico for various reasons.
Cycling keeps me sane so I dug around to see what day rides I could enjoy. It didn’t take long before an excellent treasure trove of routes in the area, Oaxaca MTB, revealed itself.
That evening I dropped Larry Ginzsky, the site organiser, a line. By morning, my inbox was chockablock with rides and since then, I’ve been working my way through his generous resource. I’ve lightly modified them on occasion to suit my obsession for paved-free riding. And I’ve also dug around further for multi-day adventures, in preparation for more relaxed, post-pandemic times.
It turns out Oaxaca de Juárez has a tonne of riding potential, much of which can be easily accessed right from the city’s front door…
GPX FILES and RWGPS
Click on this RWGPS link for a curated version of my favourite Oaxaca outings, divided into gravel/dirt, trail, and bikepacking categories. It probably needs an update but it will provide some ideas for now.
Let me know if you have any trouble accessing theses routes, or even, if there are any other issues. If you’re signed in to RWGPS, you can download gpx tracks too.
Aside from Larry’s font of information, visit Oaxaca Explorer for ideas, another site that I’ve trawled for inspiration.
Thanks for checking in. And enjoy!
