Where and when: You can ride a mountain bike almost anywhere in the Dominican Republic. The most interesting routes are in the mountains, although some tracks are so rocky that a high degree of skill is required to negotiate them. Remember to ask for permission before crossing private land. Unless absolutely necessary, riding on Dominican roads is not recommended. As another safety precaution, never ride alone. Mountain biking is an all-year-round activity.

Equipment: If you book a guided tour with an adventure company, bikes (usually of good quality) and helmets will be provided. Other accessories such riding shoes, kneepads and speedometers are not always included, which will probably only be an issue for serious riders who have their own equipment anyway.
