October is a warm month for Bonaire. This is the perfect time to hop on a bike and go for a ride. On 23rd October, 2016, Bonaire will host its annual duo mountain bike race. No need to face the slopes alone – drag a friend with you. You and your partner will have the option of two routes: a Pro Route, 31 miles/51 kilometres, and an Xtreme route, 47/71 kilometres.
