    The tour starts in front of Xisco bikes (near Costco) in Puerto Vallarta. The start time for the tour  is 8:15am.  Please try to arrive at least 10 minutes before the tour begins.   You will receive all equipment including a premium 10 speed fat bicycle rental, helmet, plus snacks, and hydration.  Please wear appropriate cycling or athletic clothing.  The ride is approximately 17 kilometers in length and the duration is approximately 2.5 to 3 hours - depending upon rider speed and number of stops along the way.  It’s hard to enjoy the ride if you are worried about being in harm’s way.

The bike tour of wall art was a highlight of our stay in PV. Carmen was an excellent guide - informative and interesting as well as keeping our comfort and safety in mind. The fat tire bikes are tons of fun and easy to handle on cobblestone streets. We loved riding through

We had a great back country roads ride followed by the graffiti tour. The ride was a good balance of challenge and chill for our group with varied skill levels. A perfect outing! Carmen was a fun and knowledgeable guide! Thanks for being so accommodating!

Our group of three did the fat bike tour with Carmen and had a great time. The ride goes at a relaxed pace and stays mostly on low traffic neighborhood streets. Carmen spent time making sure that our bikes fit properly and explained the signals that she would be using. I still

My friend and I were pumped to do this tour. It was pricy via Trip Advisor (over $100 Canadian each). We ended up meeting at their "home office" which was their house. We signed waivers, which is understandable. We were given water bottles which were previously used by

Response from bicipv, Owner at Fat Bike Graffiti and Art Tour in Puerto Vallarta
Responded 4 Feb 2020
I am sorry that you were disappointed by the tour. It appears that we “started off on the wrong foot” and that we had poor communication. You are correct we are a small business that is run out of our house. I did not think that my using the term “home office” misrepresented us as something we are not, however, you clearly felt otherwise. I wish that you had told me about your misgivings regarding our use of reusable water bottles. We use these for two reasons. Firstly, we wanted to reduce our plastic waste and felt that reusable bottles, although they are plastic, would be more ecologically friendly as they can be used many times instead of the single use bottles which many people are trying avoid. Secondly, standard single use individual water bottles do not fit into standard bicycle water bottle cages. With the cobble and dirt streets there is constant vibration of the bike and we discovered that within a very short distance the bottles always fall out of the bottle cage. It is true that the outside of the reusable bottles do get scuffed and scratched up. This is because they must fit snuggly into the bottle cage so they do not fall out with the motion of the bike. This happens after just a few uses, but in no way affects the quality of the water inside the container. We thoroughly wash them after each use. If you recall from our short safety orientation before the tour, I informed the group that the water was purified and let everyone know that we could easily buy more if needed. I would have gladly carried a newly purchased bottle of water for you in my backpack. You said that you felt that the tour was not a good value and noted that a Vallarta Eats Food tour that you took was half the price. I agree that our friends at Vallarta Eats have wonderful tours, but they are not half the price of ours. I looked at Viator’s listings today and our tour was listed at $1,744.82 pesos and Vallarta Eats tours ranged from $1,036.50 to $1,658.41 pesos. These are walking tours that focus on food and do not have specialized equipment. You complimented us on our bikes. Thank you! Our bikes are name brand bikes that cost $30,000 pesos each (approximately $2,119 CDN). They also require consistent maintenance to keep them in good working order because they are exposed to dirt, sand, water, and even sometimes salt with every use. Maintaining and storing this specialized equipment is costly and is reflected in our price, which although is higher, is not 50% higher than Vallarta Eats. Moreover, our cycling tour covered a distance of about 14 kilometres. Riding a bicycle allowed you to see more of the city and visit neighbourhoods that you would not visit on a shorter walking tour. You mentioned that you felt that the people at the back got “left behind”. As I mentioned in the orientation, we travel on public streets and as such I cannot control the flow of traffic. There were times that the first part of the group crossed through an intersection and had to wait for the others, because at that moment a vehicle approached the intersection, but at no point did I take off and leave the people at the back on their own. We travelled as a group. I do regret that one of the participants had her shoe bitten by the dog. I was very relieved that she was not harmed and if you recall, I indicated that I would be changing the route of the tour as a result. I have ridden down that road countless times and all the little dog ever did was bark. I enjoyed the murals on that side of the cemetery and I wanted to share them with my customers. You also said that the “other family that took the tour with us didn’t seem too impressed either and wanted to end the tour a bit early and go back”. It is true that one member of the other group expressed a desire to go back earlier; however, whether the other members wanted to return early is uncertain. Moreover, you and the other person in your group said you wanted to see more art so we went to the skate park art to accommodate you. If you had truly wanted to return sooner, I again, wish you would have said something. Your biggest complaint seemed to be my apparent lack of knowledge about the street art. You said that you got tired of hearing me say that I did not know who the artist was or what the meaning behind the art. Here, I could have educated you better about street art. Unlike artists in a gallery, street artists don’t have artist statements that you can read that summarize their work. Often times, they let the work “speak for itself”. Moreover, some of the artists prefer to stay anonymous and sometimes purposely hide the true meaning of their work from the general public. This creates a bit of mystery around street art which I find alluring. (Apparently you did not.) Every time I learn a new fact about a piece or get the opportunity to meet another artist, I delight in adding that information to the tour. It is like hidden treasure. Possibly you did not hear me, because people tend to mill around taking photos, but I did tell the group about many of the pieces on the tour. I took a street art tour in Mexico City and my guide did not know the underlying meaning of some of the pieces, but it did not detract from my experience. Enjoying the art for its aesthetics and how it makes you feel is also a valid and desireable way to interact with it. During my safety orientation, I had emphasized that the participants should communicate their concerns to me, so that they could have the best experience. For some reason, you did not feel comfortable doing that during the tour itself. This experience has motivated me to find ways to improve communication with my customers so that they can get the most out our tours and feel comfortable telling me in the moment if they have concerns. Thanks, Carmen
