Hello,I am a regular visitor to the Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa regions and would like to get a few road cycling rides in this trip. I'll be there from March 8 for a week or so. Are there any regular groups that go out that I could tag along with? Ideally an early morning ride.

Thanks for any info!

Check with Bi-Zihuanas on my Activities & Tours page. Also check with Mario of Mario's Leather (see my Shopping page). Mario is a biking enthusiast and knows many of the other local enthusiasts.

Interestingly, a whole group of bicyclists arrived here in Troncones late this afternoon. They rode down all the way from Morelia and their bikes and gear were quite impressive. We talked with a couple of the guys and they were very friendly and outgoing. Pretty nice.

I second Rob's suggestion of Bi- Zihuanas. Alejandro is 'the man' when it comes to cycling in this area, he helped construct the trail in Troncones. He's also been on bike trips in the Alps, the Dolomites, and the Picos de Europa so he's no slouch!

Great! I previously reached out to Bi-Zihuanas to arrange a bike rental. I'll inquire about group rides when I go into the shop.

Cheers,

Alejandro of Bi-Zihuanas is a good contact for sure. I ride with another group who typically leave from plaza kioto or the hill at La Ropa at 7 am. Rides are either Barra potosi return and two hills, la mahuaja to play Linda and back to kioto or el mirador at Ixtapa at 7 out to La Union or biacitos and filo mayor. Distances vary between a pleasant 55 km and go as long as 130 km. Thusly I’ve logged close to 1100 km in 4 weeks. Great riding, I’ve learned so much from these guys! Enjoy!
