BAJA BARELLI CAMP | Big Mountain Bike Adventures



This new riding camp is based in the small fishing village of La Ventana, located on the eastern shore of Mexico’s Baja California along the glorious Sea of Cortez. You’ll ride with EWS sensation Yoann Barelli & professional rider & coach Katrina Strand. Days consist of a morning ride and optional evening ride on the 133km of buffed trails a few pedal strokes from our seaside resort. The focus of this riding camp is to improve fitness for the upcoming riding season, improve riding techniques through simple drills, learn some training techniques from the pros and most importantly have a ton of fun riding and holidaying in the sun! Riders will be split up into two groups according to their riding level. When not on the bike the options are close to perfect: relaxing and sipping drinks in the shade, eating fish tacos, doing yoga, napping in a hammock...and a slew of optional activities such as deep-sea fishing, snorkeling with whale sharks, surfing, SUP’ing, windsurfing or learning how to kite surf. La Ventana boasts worldclass kitesurfing and amazing water activities. Nights are spent staring up at the canopy of scattered-diamond stars and enjoying moments around a campfire. According to website, La Ventana has 6 of the top 10 trails in Mexico. Camp suitable for ‘low-intermediate and above’ level riders, the trails are buffed, fast and super fun for a wide range of riding abilities.
