Whether or not you are an absolute novice or experienced rider, Bike St. Lucia's exclusive 12 miles of private trails through the tropical jungle located on the grounds of one of St. Lucia's first colonial plantations, Anse Mamin, are "unique in the world of mountain biking" according to Tom Bierl, editor of Bike magazine. Bike St. Lucia's custom trails were designed to accommodate both the first time rider and the experienced rider on Cannondale suspension bikes. Bike St. Lucia also offers a skills area where you have the option to learn the secrets of successful techniques used by experts under the watchful eye of an instructor before exploring the trails.
For the experienced rider, single track loops were built to challenge their skills. The test editor of Rodale's mountain biking magazine, Matt Phillips, who tested the trails a few months ago, considered the entire setting to be simply "incredible".
In addition, each rider is issued a bell helmet meeting all industry safety standards, and a complimentary souvenir Cannondale/Jungle Bike water bottle. There is a 4,000 square foot covered bike facility and retail center on site for guest convenience and safety, and there also are trail patrol staff. Everyone receives a trail map and signs mark the trail areas according to experience levels recommended.
Guests will have the opportunity to see the 18th century French colonial ruins of a sugar mill, and old church, a 3 million gallon fresh water reservoir among others. There is an abundance of vegetation, including wild orchids and there is also a good variety of birds to be observed. For cooling off, there is even an old fashioned river swimming hole.
