    Around the Mountain

    February 2, 2016 in Mexico

    In an effort to avoid the busy highways that feed into Mexico City we took a hilly route through some Baja-esque desert landscapes to Huichapan and then spiralled around an old volcano up to 2500 m before enjoying a long descent back into a valley containing sulfur stinking Lake Endo. What had seemed a good camping destination quickly became an area to avoid, so we pedalled onward and after talking with a few unusually skeptical locals in the town of Santa Ana Ahuehuepan found a friendly mechanic named Angel who allowed us to camp in his yard for the night.Read more

    A Pyramid in Tula & More to Come

    February 3, 2016 in Mexico

    We stopped at the archeological site in Tula de Allende for our first introduction to pre-Aztec pyramids and the impressive stonework associated with them - at this site large warrier statues, likely an indication of the importance of war in the Toltec culture. The rest of the ride to Teotihuacan was marked with narrow roads, over 100 topes, the crazy Mexcian drivers we have heard about for so long, streams running black with pollution and a thermoelectric plant belching smoke and particulates. Needless to say we understood why many people we talked to recommended taking a bus on the roads within a 100 km radius of Mexico City. We were glad to share this challenging day with another couple as we all questioned travelling by bike, but together we made it safely to Teotihuacan and found a cheap hotel for the night. It was a much needed luxury after a challenging day, and all the more so because Karl had some stomach troubles developing despite all of our efforts to filter water daily as we pass by Pemex gas stations.Read more
