Sacred Rides: For Adventure Fanatics and Their Kids

 Mountain Biking, Yoga, Beaches, Volunteering and… Kids

On 8-Day Family Escape to Mexico

 TORONTO, Ontario, Oct. 7, 2013 – A real tropical adventure for adults that’s also kid-friendly? One Canadian mountain bike adventure company has come to rescue fat tire fanatics who love their kids – and their passion for an active escape.

Frustrated by a fruitless search for such adventure, Mike Brcic, president of Sacred Rides Mountain Bike Adventures and a father of three young children, decided to take matters into his own hands and develop an adventure that he could take his own family on – and not get bored.  The result is the company’s new Ultimate Family Adventure on the sunny Pacific Coast of Mexico.

The company that helped pioneer mountain bike adventures in 13 remote and exotic destinations internationally and in Canada announces December through April, 8-day family multi-sport adventures on the coast and in the mountains north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. See:

Every morning mom and dad can get their adrenaline kicks on local jungle and mountain trails while kids aged 4 and up are supervised by trained ‘childminders’ in age-based, fun-infused activities. Afternoons target family togetherness and fun: ocean safaris, surfing lessons, horseback riding, cultural interactions through volunteer opportunities and more.

The adult rate is $2195 CAD per adult; this includes a mountain biking package for one of the adults (to allow flexibility for families with only one mountain biking parent) and one child for every 2 adults booked. Additional children cost $899 CAD, including accommodation, meals, transport and activities.

One 2014 date has been set, March 1 to 7 with more to come. Custom group departures are available December through April for groups of 4 or more. Interested parties are asked to contact the Sacred Rides office at or 1-888-423-7849.

The adventure is all based out of the spectacular Playa Escondida hideaway resort on a jungle-fringed private beach one hour north of Puerto Vallarta, just outside of the friendly and fun town of Sayulita.

Later in the week, after spending the afternoon in the chilled-out town of San Pancho, the families will head into Sayulita for dinner and a salsa lesson for the whole family at one of the local restaurants – learning to swing their hips like the locals do.

It’s a wonderful opportunity to introduce kids to some of the challenges that communities face in Mexico and how making a small contribution can make a big difference.

For those new to mountain biking, Sacred Rides has posted a video on YouTube called “This is why we ride — a celebration of mountain biking.”
