New Years celebration in: Parral A drop of elevation=2559 ft/ 780 m from Guachochi to Parral = WEEEEEEE!!!!! It took us two 1/2 days of riding from the small grimy city Guachochi to the charming city of Parral. We were surprised with out fast timing- the first day we covered 90 kms in 6 hours. That… Continue reading Where’s Poncho?
Since the 24th, after our ChePe incident with runaway trains and police with guns forcing us off the train, Birch and I took a new and unexpected direction. We decided to ride with Chris through the mountains heading south for Mexico. Today has been the 4th day since we took on this new route. It has… Continue reading taking the 25
FELIZ NAVIDAD ASSHOLES!!! Words from Birch to the train conductors who took off today. Why?

I enjoied the empty parts of new highway to ride- it was like a road bikers dream. A road construction worker named Erick, walked and assisted me for… Continue reading From beaches to mountains

I loved the feeling of riding my bike through a quiet city before dawn. The sky was cloudy but the… Continue reading Random acts of kindness
So on the 2nd day of my stay, I met up with Memo- a friend of Alex (who lives in Hermosillo). He promised to take me to see the sunset over the Ocean in San Carlos- a site that almost everyone (#1 sunset according to National Geographic?) says it’s a worthy experience. And it was!… Continue reading San Carlos getaway
Unfortunately, I had a late start for my long day of riding. I woke up to pack my gear before the sunset. My goal was to ride out by 6:30, I rode off a exactly 7. The road was packed with morning traffic so I rode the sidewalk, which was a dirt-and-gravel-mess. Already lost- I… Continue reading To Guaymas!
A week in Hermosillo. Exhausted from a long day riding from Magdalena, I slept very well that night. Next day, Daniel and I took a day trip out to the beach, in Bahia de Kino. Bahia de Kino is a small, quiet resort town. It reminded me of various features of So Cal; beachfront homes… Continue reading lazy bloggers update – part 2
