The next section of our trans-continental odyssey on two wheels begins in the beautiful city of Puerto Vallarta. We then bid adios to palm grove playas and freshly caught fruta del mar and begin our ascent into the Sierra Mascota and the Mexican plateau. On the second day, riders will spend half a day spinning along a beautiful bike path between Ameca and Ajijic.
Next, we pass through the Sierra Verde and central valleys of Jalisco state. We begin this stretch of the tour by cycling along the shores of the Laguna de Chapala where Canadian and USA expats winter. After a breakfast of huevos rancheros in Ocotlán we follow secondary roads towards the colonial towns of Guanajuato state, which include the heritage sites of old Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende. Every Sunday the nation’s capital closes many of its roads to vehicles which allows us to enjoy a car-free cycle into Mexico City on the Paseo de la Reforma.
The historic monument zone of Queretaro city is worth a visit, before we cycle triumphantly as a Convoy de los Conquistadores y Cyclistas into Mexico City.
