mexico road riding

Cycling Puerto Vallarta and Bucerias

I had the chance to get away on a warm holiday this past January.  We stayed in Bucerias Mexico.  It was the perfect destination because I could both relax with my family and experience some amazing road rides.  I found a tour and bike rental outfit called Bici Bucerias.  They hooked me up with a bike and gave me personal tours of the roads in the area.  Once familiar with the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of road riding in rural Mexico, I set off on my own.  The highways are without a proper shoulder but found the drivers to be courteous and willing to share the road.  I didn’t experience any ‘close calls.’  Overall the highways are in very good shape.  The scenery is stunning.
