Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – The sixth edition of the Puerto Vallarta-Bahía de Banderas Ruta Turística, a long-distance cycling event, will be held on Saturday, March 23rd, 2024.

The 21-kilometer Green Route is suitable for families, beginners, and wheelchair users. Beginning at Puerto Mágico, cyclists will travel south before turning around at the Agustín Flores Contreras sports complex, then on to the Las Juntas intersection, and finally back to Puerto Mágico. The entire ride should last around 2 1/2 hours.
