Bikes on Boats

Some of you may recall reading about our first Bikes on Boats experience. On that occasion, we packed our two bikes onto a small local fishing boat and transported them across the Bahía de Concepción to resume riding the Baja Divide. This time we loaded our bikes onto a much larger vessel, to travel across a much larger body of water. We'd be leaving Baja California behind to continue our journey in Mazatlan. Saying goodbye to Tuly, our Warmshowers host in La…

leaving Baja

While it should in no way compare to the drama that is ongoing in Texas and the southern US, this latest storm makes me think that we're leaving Baja at just the right time! Yesterday, Rebecca and I, along with Tiago, another cyclist who is also staying at the Warmshowers home, rode to the Baja Ferries office to purchase our tickets. Our ferry departs at 8:00 PM this evening and we'll sail overnight to Mazatlan. As you can see from…

Espinazo del Diablo

Mexico is a huge and extremely diverse country. Given that we've spent just shy of 3 months in Baja alone, I expect it'll take every bit of our 6-month tourist visa to make our way through it. With the country's immense size, we've had a tough time deciding what route to take when we make it to the mainland. The options seem unlimited. Ultimately, after speaking to some friends of ours, and reading travelogues from other cyclists, we've decided to…

For the last couple of days Rebecca and I have been enjoying the hospitality of a Warmshowers host here in La Paz. As far as Baja cyclists go, Tuly is well known. Her house is an oasis for those cycling both to and from the city. While under her roof we had the chance to formulate some plans for the next portion of our journey. We also had the time to wade through the multitude of video clips that I…

Baja Divide

Before we set out, cycling the length of Baja didn't seem like such an incredible feat. It's just a little peninsula, right? That's how naive I was. Once we got underway, the true depth of the challenge became apparent to us. Our progress was often so slow that we found it best to not even consider the number of miles remaining. Often the only thing on our minds was getting to the next spot where we could acquire more water!…

Land's end

Excluding the very first few days of our trip when we made our way from Corona, CA to San Diego, and our little mechanical-inspired detour to Loreto, Rebecca and I have been consistently following the blue line on our GPS, sticking to the Baja Divide route like glue. Even though our urge to continue along the set track was quite strong, we decided to deviate from the route to follow the coastal roads down to Cabo San Lucas rather than…
