BACKROADS GOES MOUNTAIN BIKING IN COSTA RICA

 BERKELEY, Calif., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Jungles teeming with exotic plant and animal life, serene beaches, luxurious resorts and water sports are among the attractions of Backroads' new nine-day mountain biking adventure in Costa Rica.
 Venturing into Central America for the first time, the world's No. 1 active travel company has chosen a route that showcases the abundant natural riches of this uniquely positioned country. Lying between two continents and two oceans, Costa Rica treasures its resources by designating a protected status to almost 30 percent of its territory.
 In addition to bicycles, guests employ foot, ferry and sea kayaks to explore such wonders as the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve along the Continental Divide, Manuel Antonio National Parks and a handful of tiny islands in the Gulf of Nicoya.
 Accommodations include a comfortable fishing lodge above Lake Arenal and seaside spreads such as Tango Mar Beach Resort. Fresh seafood and regional specialties highlight the bountiful menus.
 Backroads' bicycling vacations include first-class cuisine and accommodations, maps and directions, the services of two or three professional leaders, high-quality equipment, daily mileage options and a support van to transport luggage and guests.
 The Costa Rica bicycling adventure is one of over 100 active vacation itineraries offered worldwide by Backroads. For more information and free copies of the company's 1993 bicycling, walking and cross-country skiing catalogs, contact Backroads, 1516 5th Street, Suite PR6, Berkeley, CA 94710-1740; or call toll-free 800-GO-ACTIVE (800-462-2848).
