Bob Swanson has been into biking for many years. In fact, at one time he worked with Lance Armstrong, but his passion has always been in mountain biking. Last year he was introduced to Osa Mountain Village and immediately saw the potential of this sustainable resort in the mountains of southern Costa Rica as a perfect place for a single track mountain biking location. Today he is in the process of creating what is to be the first single track mountain biking destination in the Central America. Bob has brought in experts in the field of sustainable trail building and plans on building approximately 40 kilometers of trails that will range from beginner to expert in difficulty.
The trails are being built as this is being written by some experts in the field of sustainable trail building. Bob has called upon some of his many friends and contacts from the Mountain Biking Association he belongs too for help. He says that the trails will have no more than a 5 percent grade going up or down and that there will be several swinging bridges as part of the single track where cutting trail was simply impossible. When he talks about the project one can’t help but feel the enthusiasm he has for what he is doing and I have to admit it does sound amazing. Eventually he plans on bringing in people from all over the world and to conduct races at Osa Mountain Village. Bob says the adventure seekers that make up the mountain biking community are the types that also love stuff like waterfall rappelling, kayaking, ziplines, whitewater rafting, and camping in the rainforest jungle. The trails on the Osa Mountain Resort property that sits high above the Osa Peninsula in the southern pacific zone of Costa Rica are all being built with the environment in mind.
Below is a short video interview with Bob Swanson and some of his friends that are making this a reality faster than you can say single track.
