The next section of our trans-continental odyssey on two wheels begins in the Sinaloa state port of Mazatlan, which is famous for its Aquarium, and Pacific Ocean beaches. Enjoy lagosta al ajo (garlic lobster) washed down with Corona and Tequila during a day off.
The next 5 days feature several Unesco World Heritage sites before we head back to beautiful 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.
Next, we pass through the Sierra Verde and central valleys of Jalisco state. We begin the final 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.
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.
Some long and tough days with shorter less challenging days mixed in. Environment (sometimes including wind and heat) and terrain (including some significant climbing) are more of a factor. Some unexpected challenges may creep in from time to time.
