Cozumel

We woke up Playa Del Carmen at our hotel and separated our gear. We decided to store about half of our stuff at the hotel and ride as lightly as possible over to and around Cozumel. We are excited to travel lighter and hopefully see and bike more. Just a few minutes from our hotel […]


OK. we haven’t posted in a while so we will have to catch everyone up a bit. We left Tulum early and got back out on the highway and continued our ride north toward Play Del Carmen. We planned to go about 40 km’s to the small seaside community of Akumal. The seaside area of […]


We have a few posts to get us up to date with our travels.  We are currently in Brooklyn, NYC.  Rest, delicious food, and transitioning back into American culture are in order. On Wednesday June 2nd, we woke super early in our little oasis in Bacalar in an effort to beat the blazing sun. We […]

So, we left Chetumal after a quick good-bye to our touring friends Cass and Roman. Best of luck on your south bound journeys. It was great talking to you both – you both are an inspiration! Our ride from Chetumal was uneventful, rather flat and quite hot by mid morning. We rode 40 km’s in […]

Our friends in San Cristobal recommended this spot over Agua Azul in the hopes that we would see less crowds and vendors. The road from Ocosingo was pretty tight and hilly and we wound up […]


On Wednesday we had a great send off from San Cristobal.  Our friends John, Jaime, and Barbara offered to give us a ride a bit out of town through some heavy construction.  It was great spending time with all of them, we had gone to Guatemala with John;  Barbara and Jaime are our amigos that we met […]


We took a quick trip to Guatemala. We spent 5 days on Lake Atitlan and it was just breathtaking!


It’s another gorgeous sunny day in the mountains.  We are packing up to leave our hotel in the historic district of San Cristobal de las Casas this morning and heading over to a campground in town where we’ll stay for another day or two.  The change of climate from the Pacific coast in Oaxaca to […]


Today is a waiting game.  We are taking a red-eye bus tonight from 8pm-8am to get to San Cristobal de las Casas in the state of Chiapas.  Our bikes are going to once again become our moda de travel as we embark on another small journey. The next month will be spent pedaling through the […]
