Costa Rica Cycling Challenge.

Becaus often people ask me if I also can help with a route. I love to ride Costa Rica myselfe so I made this route and named it the Costa Rica Cycling Challenge. A 13 day tour where you ride a 600 km and climb a total of about 8 000 mtrs! Of course you can  take this challenging route by yourself on the date that it suits you best.

Sounds like a big deal and might be a little thoug some days but its absolutly doable if you have cycling experience and a healty fysical basic condition.

The end! I think this ride will be talked about and REMEMBERED afterwards. You had on of the TOUGHEST rides  you can get in Costa Rica in these few days you were here.


Just a few things to be shure!

Itinerary, prices are based upon standard rooms and maybe changed without notice!

Of course we will keep you up to date, but we have mother nature to consider as well how things go in Costa Rica.

Organizing a small group, as off  10-14 participants!
We us standard small hotels, take time not only to ride but also enjoy Costa Rica. In case of a group we want to use a backup vehicle or bus.  That’s why we have to consider a small group as minimum participants.

You may always  ride this route on the date you wish. Just let me know and I will make reservations at the various different lodges so they are prepared to receive you. In that case the route will be auto guided. And luggage will be taken using panniers (not included)
