+++ first days in Mexico +++

By on Wednesday December 13th, 2017

I reached Ensenada on my first day shortly after sunset. It was a windy ride as expected, but the scenery was worth it.

In Ensenada I met Jacob with whom I’m cycling since the last 2 1/2 days now. We crossed the peninsula and made it to San Felipe today. After two days of mainly climbing and less progress than planned we enjoyed the downhill today and also the wind is blowing in the right direction again. This made it even bearable when I had to fix another flat short before town.

We will be heading further south and I might not have any service the upcoming days. Also water supply will be challenging. I might fill my ten liter bag entirely for the first time the next days.

    Martin ….

    I met you at a campsite in Jasper I check in every now and then to see how you are moving along. San Felipe South is pretty barren but there are some places to get water. Stop in at Puertocitos and go to the hot spring they are right on the ocean very unique.
    Gonzaga bay is nice as well although you may get charged heavily at the Alphonsias.
    I have travelled through the baja a number of times I love it there.
    I really enjoy your reports I would like to get more information on your bicycle, and yout thoughts on its performance.

      Hi Doug, nice to hear from you. I have already reached La Paz and I’m no exploring a little bit the south tip of the peninsula. Today I want to make it to Cabo Pulmo to do some snorkeling.
      In Puertocitos I skipped the hotsprings after I spent a long time at the cow patty and had some nice chats with the bartender who turned out to be a cyclist as well.
      I will write a little report on my bike setup shortly. I can already tell now, that I’m very happy with the bike and it’s performance so far.
