Mountain Biking

Jamaica's hilly terrain creates a challenge for mountain bikers, though there are easier rides, especially near the beaches and on the western end of the island. Heavy, unpredictable traffic on the North Coast Highway makes it off-limits for cyclists, but smaller country roads and winding trails weave a network through the countryside.
