A gift to the bikepacking community: Touring for tacos and Tecate along the Baja Divide

This is my first time in Mexico. We have no plan. No itinerary. No goals and no heart rate monitors. The only statistic we’re collecting on this trip is “number of tacos consumed.” (Final tally: 111.) To give you an idea of how prepared I am I didn’t bring a tent. Or pants. What we do have, though, is roughly a month before we need to be back through the Tecate border crossing into the U.S. and then on to our desk jobs.

Now that they are Taco experts,

it would have been nice for them to say where were the best they had.

Article was lacking ANY info. on Tacos ??????

By riding the divide they missed the best tacos by about 7 miles.

With all the calories they are burning, just think how many guilt free tacos and beers they can put away!
