    I lived in Santiago for two years. Close to Santiago, El Huinganal and Santuario de la Naturaleza were awesome.

    ok, thanks for the info. I was hoping to find a crew that rides hard and has access to good rental bikes so that we can hit the trails in the pictures.

    The other day in this same trail I came to meet 2 americans living here in Santiago, Chile, they were riding Rocky Mountian MTBs , one of them was flying back to Colorado to pick another bike back home.
