    Hola, Advriders. I've been into riding mostly technical off-road singletrack for the past long time, but have been getting more into adventure riding, starting off with the Transamerica Trail expedition I did with my dad (proftom on advrider), and wanted to share a recent trip I did out of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. This trip report is also available on my blog with larger resolution images and little nicer formatting. I'm planning on riding the New Mexico Backcountry Discovery Route in mid-June, so I look forward to continuing to share with this community.

    For my 30th birthday, I flew down to Puerto Vallarta (all the cool kids just drop the Puerto, so I’ll follow suit) to ride the Four-day Adventure Tour with Bike Mexico. Due to a little chaos with the Site Scan launch and my dad’s recent return from Panama, the trip was planned at the absolute last minute. We had no idea what we were getting into. Fortunately, everything worked out beautifully. Jurgen Dano was a fantastic host, giving us the opportunity to ride beautiful terrain in rural Jalisco and visit historical Mexican villages.

    We covered almost 1,000 km of mostly dirt roads (sadly no single track) and ran a nice little figure-eight through Jalisco. An interactive map of our GPS tracks is available here for those who would like to follow along.

    4-Day-ADV-31_web.jpg Hello Daniel,

    thanks a lot for the nice writing.

    There is actually a shot from your father "riding" through the restaurant to the "parking" in San Sebastian del Oeste.

    Saludos from Mexico
