From the Cold of Puebla to the Desert and then 7,200 ft. in what felt like a rain forest, and back to 878ft of the humid warm weather. We attempted to quickly ride through what we thought was a small town today that ended up keeping us in the center of the town for almost an hour. LOST!!! Yes!!!! The town of Pachuca was built on a hillside and watching the people walk UPHILL on a steep incline of multiple steps was excruciating.
Seeing their pride in every stride made this feeling more pleasant knowing they are committed to their culture. EPIC RIDE....
The ride today was an EPIC road!!!! What you would think would only take 4 hours for 200 mi. took almost 8! This was a tight twisty road on the East side of Mexico City that twisted over the mountains for several hours.
It felt like we were in the Rain forest with dense fog, extreme humidity, waterfalls coming off the steep mountains, and the turns off the road that excite ALL Adventure Riders. Kim
has been an amazing passenger, going with the flow, even when the flow is in the rearview mirrors.
She has become an Adventure rider accepting the challenges that we come across daily. Inclement weather, challenging roads, bike malfunctions, gear layering, and no complaining!!!!
today was new for us as most days but we seem to always find a blend that is accepting.
Even when we do not know what it is. Justin
has a new name. Dr. Badillo!!!
For whatever reason, this fits him well tonight?!?!
This part of the country has some amazing mountains. The feel is a mixture between Colorado and what we know of Costa Rica. We can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
