1st ride of 2015 - ZACATECAS MEX

Out of the blue, a short ride was elaborated the afternoon of Dec 30. Why not, lets ride on Jan 1.

Soon at 10:30 am, we all 5 riders are ready to go. Despite we went to sleep at 3:00 am the previous night, we feel fresh. We have not ride together since several months ago and is exciting meet again.


The route: Zacatecas - Jerez - Sierra de Cardos.
Total distance round trip: about 100 miles.
Bikes: 5
Food: Tortas de Chorizo for breakfast and seafood for lunch (60 dollars for 5 tragones both meals)

Well, I'll just post the few pics we took. Hope you like the scenery.


Here is the little town MALPASO, ZAC and its famous Tortas de chorizo...








just before get to the top of the sierra, a flat tire on Ernestos' bike "El Garbanzo" but nothing that the green slime cant fix.



now stoping at some of the rock formations (Cardos)



















our lunch at "El Muelle Jeerezano" Restaurant




After few more riding around we called the day and returned to Zacatecas.

It was like a continuation of the property fence to avoid cattle passing through

ready to go





the route for Rally del Bajio is amazing. Has several panoramic views of the valley, and the mountains, fresh air and smelling to wet dirt and mixed with scent of pines some times.








Water is all over the places, very nice to camp for the night, set a small fire and talk bullsh**







Also you will have a chance to make your dreams come true and practice some bullfighting....









And you cannot miss the little villages, lost in the time, almost empty, but beautiful to stop and talk to the locals and have a cold soda.








You will share the road with the villagers, they are as well adventure riders... every day...




A pleasant place to ride...




A delicious meal to cook after the ride.




This is a little taste of Guanajuato Backyard. I need to ride more.
