There are families that on weekends and holidays circulate on the bike paths of the Samanes park and the ecological reserve Santay, which has an extension 14.5 kilometers.
Luis Sanchez, principal of Ecuador Adventure, regrets that the city does not comply with the other 9 circuits promised. “The first stage needs maintenance, the paint disappeared, not to mention that sometimes is used as a parking lot of cars.”
Of this situation all the 37 members of the Xtreme group, who in the last holiday took advantage of the desolate streets to make a city tour also complain.
Their leader Roberto Leon said that the only way to ride in Guayaquil is in a group. For this purpose they meet on Tuesdays, Thursdays and weekends.
One of the regular routes of the group is the one that includes Puerto Azul-Progreso, that covers an area of nearly 67 kilometers.
