If you are looking for a mountain
bike vacation, we’ve got the perfect spot, the Costa Rica
of Indian Ocean, and nobody knows about it. Welcome to a mountain
biker’s Island Paradise, Sri Lanka.
The Costa Rica of Indian Ocean
Sri Lanka, small island nation off the southern coast of India on
Indian Ocean, was not known for much other than good cricket, beautiful
beaches and being hot. Not much by all accounts until the recent
devastating Tsunami. You think an island vacation is all fun, sun,
surfing, diving, crystal-clear aqua-blue waters lapping against
powdery golden sand, pleasantly numbing cocktails? Well, yes, Sri
Lanka has all that. But here, beyond the beaches and kicking back
with a few cool ones, there's another island pleasure: lush hillsides
with incredible riding trails.
