Flores Mountainbike Trail is developing slowly but surely.
Volunteers in the Flores Homestay communities are mapping those areas for suitable mountain bike trails.
These will be published on www.floresmountainbiketrail.com.
This website is an open source of information for anyone who likes to explore Flores by bike.
Meanwhile people in Australia and Netherlands are working on getting good bikes to Flores. We are working on getting special deals with mountainbike suppliers, organising small groups of travellers to bring these bikes to Flores and leave their bikes behind in the Flores Homestay Network communities.
These bikes remain property of Eco Flores Foundation and are to be used by the communities for rental and provide alternative income for the communities.
In the near future we will facilitate technical workshops for maintenance and local guiding by bike.
Most international airlines provide 23 kilo free for sports gear.
