In Rocky Point, there are no bike lanes. But there is however, an abundance of mountain biking trails that weave through the southern Rockies.  Mountain biking is an excellent activity to relieve stress and promote mental wellness, and Rocky Point, Mexico, is the place to do it.

The Batamote Mountain yields particularly satisfying biking trails. The wide open mountain range and hot Mexican sun are the perfect companions for exercise. The ten mile trail crosses the Sonoyta River in vibrant fashion as cyclist rapidly peddle their bikes over its dusty surface. One can embark on the adventure alone or hire a guide for safety. Expect to pay a 56 pesos (5 dollars) entry fee in order to enter the state park in which the trail is located.

When embarking on a mountain bike adventure in Mexico, it is important to keep safety in mind. First off, avoid consuming alcoholic beverages before hitting the trail. This can be dangerous for obvious reasons, and it leaves the rider prone to de-hydration. Secondly, make sure you wear the required protective gear. This includes helmets, gloves, and long pants. Although it is best to avoid a crash altogether, wearing the required safety gear provides a second layer of security in the unfortunate event that an accident occurs.

If you don’t have your own bike, or you’re hesitant about bringing one, then rest easy knowing that there’re a plethora of bikes available for rent. Rocky Point Cycle is a great option for mountain bike rentals. They have multiple rental plans that offer varying degrees of quality and rental duration. You can rent a bike for the entire span of your trip if you’d like.
