Beast of the East The Beast of the East is one of our newest rides. We follow the old United Fruit Company’s banana republic railroad from Guatemala City out to the Honduran border and make a stop in at the Mayan Ruins of Copan. This is a super unique ride into Guatemala’s “wild, wild East” a place that not many tourists venture to. The arid lowland deserts and railroad towns are a throw back to the time of the Banana Republic. Following the old railroad grade not only means a multiday rail trail ride that is not super technical but it also takes us through remote river canyons and once important but now forgotten banana outposts. The ride is 5 days of point to point fully supported riding with 4 nights camping and the last night we stay in a hotel in Copan Las Ruinas Honduras.
