Bicyclist resources in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Mexico
Bike riding in Mazatlan -- or trail riding outside the city -- is fun for every level of rider
• If you want a leisurely ride, just peddle your cruiser bike up the Malecon!
• If you want long-distance touring and races, ride from Mazatlan to one of the many Rural Sinaloa communities within reach of one-day bicycle day trips!
• If you want to get crazy riding a mountain bike on a single-track trail, there are many places to do that just outside Mazatlan!
• For more serious riders, two Mazatlan biking resources stand out: Fernando Kelly, owner of Kelly’s Bicycle Shop and Tours, and Mazatlan Bike Tours and its owner Rudy Valdez.
Both Fernando Kelly and Rudy Valdez conduct more ambitious rides and tours, both on-road and off-road.
Kelly’s Bicycle Shop is also widely regarded as the most experienced bike tuning and repair facility in Mazatlan, and they clearly have worked on more high-line bikes than any other shop.
Mazatlan is the location of a number of bike races, tours and events including Vuelta Ciclista Mazatlan (ciclotourmazatlan.org), an important five-day bike race that begins and ends in Mazatlan -- and that draws bicyclists from around the world.

Stray Dogs have fun every Sunday!
Mazatlan is also home to Perros Sin Dueño MTB (PSD), a non-profit organization whose mission is the advancement of cycling in Mazatlan, with a specific focus on cross-country mountain biking.
The club offers Sunday rides and an annual event called The Perruta.
The club has organized rides every Sunday. These rides range from 25 miles (40 km) to just over 60 miles (100 km) and pass through many of the cool pueblos surrounding Mazatlan.
These Sunday rides depart at 6am from Taller la Pachanga on Avenida Santa Rosa, directly behind Colegio ICO at Carretera Internacional Km 1202.
There is no cost for participation in the Sunday rides. Perros Sin Dueno does, however, ask for a donation of 20 pesos (under $2 dollars either American or Canadian!) to help defray the cost of gasoline for the support vehicle, as well as water and fruit provided along the ride route.
Helmets are mandatory, and a suitable mountain bike in a good state of repair is essential. Bringing a spare tube to fit your rim size is a very good idea as well!

The upcoming Perros Sin Dueño MTB Perruta 2017
The Perruta is an annual event coordinated by the Perros Sin Dueño MTB club. It is not a race but rather, a cross-country ride that that gives the participant a fabulous glimpse of the pueblos that surround Mazatlan.
The Perruta has two distance options for the participant: 50 km and 100 km. This ride is almost entirely cross-country (i.e. not on asphalt) and demands a moderate level of fitness, stamina and bike handling skills.
The Perruta is a fully supported ride with strategically placed hydration stations along the route that offer fluids and solids. Of course there are support vehicles as well.
Perruta 2016 was held on Sunday January 31, 2016, and it was a smashing success. The 2017 Perruta de Mazatlan will be held Sunday, February 5th.
