Let me start by saying that I am NOT an experienced bicycle person. I just learned how to ride my bike 2 years ago; I also do not also ride my bike too often and have only practiced on flat terrain. However, I managed to survive the entire downhill bike tour and enjoyed the experience with excellent help from the bike guides.
The tour took ~3hours from Ocho Rios but they were generous with two bathroom stops ( I needed both), and
What a great time we had. The scenery was awesome. No accidents occurred. By the time we got downhill, you we eager to jump into the lake to cool off. The lunch was full of flavor. We had a chance to buy coffee during lunch but thought it was too expensive. Afterwards, we learned that it was the cheapest place for the Blue Mountain coffee.
A fantsiic day out which I would recommend everyone to do. It is along drive to get ther but you see some more of Jamaica and the driver gives a good commentary. We really enjoyed the bikes and it is not difficult at all. The scenery is beautiful. Take bug spay and some crayons etc for the school.
The Blue Mountains IS stunning the views and wildlife are breathtaking
We were picked up on time. The bus journey will take a few hours, the good thing it has AC and the driver Markie Markie will keep you informed and you get to see the local sights that you don't see in the hotel, plus jokes and riddles the entire trip up the mountain. The bus will take you up to 7,000 feet and then you cycle down.
We stopped for brunch the food was great and delicious. We were then introduced to the coffee that was produced there and this was available for purchase in their gift shop.
There is a large selection of bikes to choose from and the guides help you chose and make adjustments if required, we were given knee and elbow pads and a helmet, safety is paramount.
The roads in Jamaica aren't smooth mostly ones this remote, so the guide would regularly shout 'pot hole' and we would, in turn, shout it back up the single line we were cycling in. It was all good JAMAICAN fun.
Lunch is at the same stop off where we had brunch earlier, and the Jerk chicken and rice is really great and tasty. We also got to stop off to learn about the wildlife there and well as learn about which plants you could find to use as natural remedies. Then we continued downhill further on the bikes.
The tour ended with a dip in a cool waterfall where the locals will assist you and sell you drink and finally a 'beer drinking contest'. You will need money to tip these guys that help you in the waterfall. They are very kind and helpful. Also brought a bag of beautiful mandarins from a local. This is the time the bike guides one only will collect for all to tip them.
I would definitely recommend FANTASTIC DAY!
1. Web site states over 60 years old you cannot ride Seriously look at my photo. I am 60 years old female and I was up the front riding as fast and good as anyone else. I would hope that I could still be riding in 20 years time or more. Found this offensive.
2. Brunch and lunch and they were really great were too close together time wise. We were starving for hours after we got on the bus and then were still full from Brunch to eat an early lunch. Dont know who you can change this as the venue was great. Maybe Brunch served at your office area?
3. The guide on the bike wearing the fluoro vest he was the only one was speeding past and weaving in and out and past rides which I though was very dangerous if a rider turned their wheel slightly. He was showing off, but was inappropriate riding like this with other riders not familiar with the bikes or roads. Idiot!
We were very pleased with this excursion and told everyone about it when we got back to the resort. We've visited Jamaica 3 times and this was the first time that I felt we saw the non-resort Jamaica. The mountains were just beautiful and the bike ride was exhilarating while feeling completely safe. We were worried it would be a little too much being on a bike for over 2 hours but neither one of us ever felt uncomfortable. I highly recommend this excursion.
