I'm riding down to Guanajuato in April; probably crosssing at McAllen/Reynosa. I've looked at a couple of routing ideas. Does anyone have a preferred route ?

A great ride is down through Ciudad Valles to San Loius Potosi then to Guanajuato. The ride over the mountains and across the high plain is pretty neat . Not a lot to see but wide open wild back country. There are lots of side trips . Like Delores Hidalgo , San Miguel D'

This is actually a super-scenic route, if you're not looking to blast time this is the way to go - MX 120 through the Sierra Gorda after Aquismon (Xilitla, Jalpan, ... ) you could make just getting there a fun project.

I'd almost go down one way, and come back the other...

Tricepilot,

Im just looking at various options.

Thanks

I just came in from Zac via Pinos-Ocampo-SanFelipe-Silao. I was hoping to find some dirt off of 87 but everything appears to be paved. Beautiful route though, nice scenic farm land and villages.

I wish I woulda paid more attention to the tunnel discussions, had a helluva time finding my hostel, in the pouring rain no less.

Hell, a few months ago I could have sent you tracks of about 60 miles of scenic dirt road on that route. I had a helluva time finding it, but it was worth it.

Yeah the tunnels. Its a little different navigating around GTO.

Is this a route the OP might like, from Reynosa to GTO?
Or is this something else, about a ride you did?

You'll last 5 minutes in there.

Look for the sign "As you now see me, so shall you be soon"

No joke. It's in the museum near the entrance.

If Misery Goat is looking for dirt, there's a nice loop that runs North of Santa Rosa de Lima, and that's only a few minutes East of Guanajuato.

If it ever stops raining I may check it out. Seriously, I'm heading to Patzcuaro in a few days, do you know of any good dirt out that way?
