Bike riding

Mountain bikes are a great way to explore the Peninsula. For those more into the “real deal,” Belize offers several pro-attended road races. The annual Holy Saturday Cross Country Cycling Classic takes place on Easter weekend and is a 144-mile challenge from Belize City to San Ignacio and back. International Pro Racers including various Tour de France participants tackle this event every year. At least one major road race takes place in Belize. WOW! Off-road racers are also challenged. The Temple to Temple Race, for instance, is a world-class mountain biking endurance event spanning seven days and 750 kilometers. The inaugural event kicked off in 2005, crisscrossing Belize and finishing in Placencia. Plenty of activities even for those of the hardcore persuasion!
