Planning a ride from Santa Fe, NM to Copper Canyon in Mexico with a pal. We are both experienced road riders but relative newbies off tarmac. Leaving on 26th October and returning on 3rd November (9 days on the road). Will be riding GS Adventures. Any and all advice appreciated on the following questions; a) best route to/from Copper Canyon? b) Anywhere particular to stay/ see/ do en route? c) What are the best maps for the area? d) Is there GPS mapping available for Garmins for the canyon? and most importantly: e) Which routes to ride in the canyon, bearing in mind we are both off-road newbies? Any and all thoughts appreciated.
