Day 110: The dang rats left me a b’day present

I woke up pretty refreshed and as I was packing up, I noticed that one of my panniers was ripped open. Bummer. I looked in and found that the peanut candy had attracted some rodent, likely a rat to burrow… Continue Reading →

Day 109: The Quattro restart the journey

The lovely old hotel was was a good place to rest and I enjoyed walking around in the old town. In the morning, we took it easy packing up and by the time we left the place it was nearly… Continue Reading →

Day 108: Checking out Mazatlan

We arrived at Mazatlan earlier than the scheduled time of 11. It was just 9 and as I got off the ferry, noticed that my front tire had lost air. Dang, I guess I didn’t fix the flat properly. The… Continue Reading →

Day 106-107: Rest days in La Paz

We ended up staying longer in La Paz because of the ferry schedule.but it was the family that hosted us that made the big difference in making our stay such a pleasure. Julio was a veteran traveller and had hitch… Continue Reading →

Day 105: Scheduled off day

La Paz turns out to be an absolutely charming town. Till now, all along Baja, I haven’t felt any town to have a soul. They mostly seemed to be towns formed out of necessity, a little truck stop to service… Continue Reading →

Baja California – travel thoughts

It’s a desert, so be prepared for it. Carry enough water for at least 75 km of riding (you know what you need). Carry a bit more if you decide to wild camp and have to cook. I would be… Continue Reading →

Day 104: La Paz! Whoopie!

The palm stumps I had tied my hammock to were pretty flexible and I ended up on the ground when I got in. So I ended up sleeping on the ground, but the hammock was great to keep the bugs… Continue Reading →

Day 103: The little guy in the head is a geek

The ride was a super blah again today. A long 40 km of flat, some rolling hills and a short climb. A couple of rest stops along the way and some side / tail winds in the afternoon. Nothing much… Continue Reading →

Day 102: Flats makes one patient

It was a funny night. The power transmission lines send a lot of vibrations through the tower and the hammock was getting a good buzz. Once in a while the lines would make a loud crack that would wake me… Continue Reading →

Day 101: Hills in the heat. Gotta love it!

It’s popular knowledge among cyclists touring in Baja, that the hill after Loreto is the “Big One”. I was informed by Siemen, a cyclist I met in Canada, that the hill is actually ok. I looked up and it was… Continue Reading →

Day 100: Always feels awesome to get to a Century

Dengue is on the news in every place here and we’ve been warned about mosquitoes too. I suppose extra precaution to be taken for the next couple of weeks or so. We slept in the nice shed at Sandra &… Continue Reading →

Day 99: Mar De Cortez is picturesque

We woke up to a nice little sunrise here and made b’fast as the sun warmed up. We spotted Jean-Francois riding up the hill as we were having coffee and invited him to join us for a bit. He had… Continue Reading →

Day 98: Day that went into the night

Such a long day that I forgot where I woke up in. Now I get it, the Bomberos. Though the lights were on all night and occasion songs would play, I slept well there. We were up early and decided… Continue Reading →

Day 97: Spotting Mar De Cortez!

The mosquitoes were an absolute killer in the night and I fought them till I couldn’t stand it any longer and got into my sleeping bag even though it was warm. I was up at 5 in the morning and… Continue Reading →

Day 96: An oasis in the desert

It was funny sleeping in the park, the kids were playing in the evening and some of the young couples decided to make it a place to chat in privacy till the wee hours of the morning. But a nice… Continue Reading →
