If you long to dip your toes in the Pacific Ocean—or maybe you enjoy surfing as much as you love riding your bike—then this classic Mexican mountains-to-sea route is sure to appeal. Recently updated to incorporate bonus dirt and avoid an ongoing highway project, it's a ride that takes you from the heart of Oaxaca city to the state's craggy coastline, in one fabulous long weekend of fine riding, camping, and dining. For those with more time to spend in the area, we've included a recommended route extension via the Mitla valley.
