    Translation to English for those that are interested: No but if you're interested in what we can do for India, the cheapest and very good, all down by Inca.

    Im sorry to tell you that you wont find 10 foot of decent mtb trails in Buenos Aires, as its flat as a pancake, beautiful city though and bike-friendly up to some extent (compared with other capital cities in LatAm).
    For respectable trails you need to travel at least 800 km (500 miles) to Cordoba or visit Mendoza, Rio Negro or Neuqun for some of the most stunning views in the world.
    Bear in mind that most of the Patagonia trails are not indicated and lack of infrastructure or maintenance as they are normally cattle trails and are bike accessible only in late spring and summer. You can also try any skiing centre (Chapelco, Cerro Bayo, Bariloche) but again, only in late spring and summer.

    Thanks for the information

    I'm actually going to be in Cordoba for a few days; tell me more about what all might be available in Cordoba and surrounding area.

    Thanks.

    In Cordoba you can try Villa Giardino, Chuchi Corral and Rio Pinto. At least those are the places I have ridden in, but that was 8 years ago.
    Most of it through double tracks and a lot of small rivers and streams crossing.
