Local Loam: Mexico City, and the story of the De Avila brothers
Win a GO3 Camera by Insta360 this issue in our FREE subscriber prize draw.
Mexico has been having a booming MTB scene the past few years. Check out this video where you’ll meet some the founding members of the Bike Crew of Mexico City: Mau De Avila, Santi De Avila, and Jorge De Avila .
When they were kids, their father used to lead guided rides and teach mountain biking classes- after he passed, the three brothers got together and re-established his business. Concurrently, the mountain bike scene in Mexico City has blossomed into something very significant, and that’s IMO in no small part to the role the De Avila family has played. Today, the De Avila Biking Co not only hosts classes and clinics at the family bike park, but also has after school programs for kids in Mexico City, a fleet of rental bikes, and offers guided rides tailored to Mexico City locals.
