- “I’m going to come back again next year. I’ll also take up a collection. I’ve lots of friends who run bike shops in California. If I can, I’ll bring along some bikes. If not, I’ll definitely bring a duffel bag full of goodies!”~ 2009 First-time Howler Racer

Making a fantastic impression on first-time participants is indeed an understatement to say about Howler Mountain Bike Nicaragua. This young mountain bike event in Central America captures the heartfelt support in the above quote. The San Juan Howler series races for 18K, 28K or 42K now only in it's third year. Why not come as a racer and/or visitor to 'bliss-out' in this tropical undiscovered paradise.
Contributing in their own heartfelt ways, the racers benefit two nonprofits the Howler supports: Communidad Connect and Fundacion Tierra (involved with social and environmental causes).
What San Juan Howler Offers Racer & Visitors
What else do Howler bikers and visitors enjoy? Billy Molina, a U.S. pro racer before settling in Nicaragua 14 years ago and Howler aficionado says, “I’d love to see more people attend the race not only as participants but as observers and admirers of the nature that surrounds San Juan del Sur”. Aside from the beauty of San Juan, Nicaragua has many volcanoes and lagoons that can easily be accessed on bikes.”
Another competitor exclaimed, “Howler kicked my ass, but it was really cool! Brutal as it was, Howler was an incredible race! I’m returning next year.”
Nicaragua, the “Land of Lakes and Volcanoes”, gives you unbeatable value for awesome adventures. Mountain bike racers who thrill to the challenge of an unspoiled jungle terrain which consists mainly of single tracks and adrenalin-rushing jump lines is the first thing that attracts racers to the San Juan Howler. A soothing and healing place to recover after the race in San Juan, after the race; an idyllic horseshoe bay bathed in gentle waves is the second reason for racers to come. After the race, the participants can also adventure surf by venturing further out into the Pacific Ocean.
A Howling Good Time
A vacation jewel of Central America, yet to be discovered is a bonus on top of the mountain bike race. Surfing vacations here are better than Hawaii, mainly due to the lesser crowds. Nicaragua’s clear lagoons blessed with nature's gifts, is definitely the place to go if you have been dreaming of a hiking holiday, scuba diving or a leisurely hiking holiday.
