One of the best way to explore the higher part of the island is by mountain bike, because you’ll find areas that most tourists overlook.

The new road conditions make it easier to bike from the main town, Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, to the little village El Progreso. That’s about 7 kilometers/4.3 miles. Or if you feel really adventures you can bike the whole 24 kilometers/15 miles, visiting El Junco Lagoon, the Semi-Natural Giant Tortoise Breeding Center and finally end at the sandy white beaches of Puerto Chino.

Most of the local population ride bicycles, as a means of good exercise and to maintain a healthy environment. In the main town, there are several tourism agency offices where you can rent a bike. You can even go for a spin from the port to the Interpretation Center or visit the different beaches.
