We haven’t started pedaling yet. In fact, today we are loading our still-boxed bikes on a minibus and heading to Valle De Bravo where we will spend a couple of days reassembling and getting psychologically ready for some fairly big climbs around the land of volcanoes.

Mexico City has been surprisingly fantastic. I don’t quite recall what I was expecting, but is a very pretty city with beautiful Spanish Colonial style buildings. There are trees everywhere which makes the city very pleasing. Of course it also has a hell of a lot of people and can get fairly intense. Here are a few photos:

At the Sonora market – I think this market was the size of a small town in the US
