    Training on gravel

    November 9, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    After a relaxing night in Don's trailer, we enjoyed our breakfast during sunrise again. Then we headed off to a long day today, as we had to leave the East side of Baja California again to get to Highway 1 which will take us all the way to the Southern tip of the peninsula. The first kms were easy riding with only little wind. We then had to go on a dirt road for about 4.5kms - they have been building a paved road connecting Gonzaga Bay and Highway 1 and this is the last missing piece about to get finished at the beginning of next year. Luckily, we got back on a paved road afterwards, the dirt road stretch took us about an hour and we were covered in dust afterwards. All in all a good preparation for the South American roads,we definitely had some valuable experience. Once we got to Highway 1, we saw some interesting landscape full of giant cactuses of different species. At night, we camped next to restaurante Melany in Punta Prieta where we had a Mexican dinner. The problem here is that the food is quite low carb, so it doesn't give us the energy we need for cycling. So usually, we have to eat snacks at a shop before or after dinner on top.Read more
