Hey guys, is Cerro Gordo still in good shape? How are the trails in Toro Verde? I guess they charge to ride there even if you bring your own bike?
Other than Cerro Gordo, and toto verde, what would you recommend? I hear Monagas is usually pretty messy? Isn't there soome desrt riding near the olympic training center?
Thanks, headed back down in 4 weeks and bringing my bike
Hi there !
Cerro Gordo is in great shape, although some downhills have been eroded by rain. The sandy terrain makes it perfect for riding in the next few months rainy season.
I tried Toro Verde last weekend and the trails were closed due to rain..must call them to find out in advance!
Monagas...ah...i had excellent, absolutely dry riding there for several sessions last week. This week has been nonstop rain, so, no Monagas unless you want to ride the bunker loop and the climb to the tower. For me, the singletrack there is dangerous when wet.
Near the olympic center, really at the other side of the expressway, i minute from the olympic ctr entrance, there is Los Pinchos trail. Flowy, maintained and marked. Don't miss it ! But, don't forget your Stan's sealant. Absolutely necessary there.
Let us know when you are about to get to PR. May be able to escape work for a couple of rides.
