Two bicycle travelers seeking ride south!


Hello! Two friendly American bicycle travelers trying to escape the rainy north for the sunny south! Currently in Vicente Guerrero and looking for a ride to San Ignacio or somewhere along the way. Happy to pay for gas and share the driving. We have two bicycles (and the material + ability to safely secure them to any vehicle) but minimal other luggage, let me know if you can help! My name is Liza, call or text 978-987-7595. Gracias!

HS Liza,
Sorry to see no replies here yet, but a lot of Nomads will applaud you for not riding your bikes down on Hwy 1...some, myself included, used to think it was a great idea to ride bicycles down....but also driving a cage down, realized that bicyclists can certainly put themselves and others in danger due to the road width...sometimes also true for me when on a motorcycle down here.

Good luck and enjoy Baja.

Liza,
Ignore motoged and the other bike haters on nomad, they are like bike haters everywhere, just wrong-headed people.
Post your request on Facebook Talk Baja. And go chat up drivers at the Pemex.
And if you don't find ride, rain will let up on Monday.

Liza wants a ride south with her bike, not to ride her bike (on the dangerous, shoulder-less sections Highway One)!

Well said Motoged. Please keep your bikes off of highway 1 you are a hazard that endangers not only your own life but those of drivers having to avoid you.
I am not a bike hater, but they have their place and Baja Highway 1 is not that place.

The pot bellies are blowing their foul-breathed bellicose bellowing bleeats.

Liza, don't worry about their lack of driving skills and aggressive old man rage at the world and people unlike them, you can smell their halitosis long before you see their drunken driving on rte 1, so you will have plenty of warning of their approach.

Actually, I don't have a pot belly and the last several years I have made 3+ trips each year from Tecate to Cabo without a drink within 10 hours of getting behind the wheel and without an accident. I am old and with that comes some wisdom.

Liza - we usually run radios when traveling and we use the term "Darwins" to refer to bicyclists on HWY 1 as a warning to other drivers in our group. If you are not familiar with the term "Darwin" it refers to people doing something so stupid that they do not qualify when the "Survival of the fittest" test is applied. Think about it. Don't be a danger to yourself and others.

Enjoy Baja, it is a magical place. Ride a mountain bike on the thousands of miles of dirt tracks to go to wonderful places.

Goat, why are you online today? Is this not your big day to loot and "peacefully" protest?

Are you grounded again?

Dave,
I think the goat is:
a) off his meds
b) drinking again
c) intoxicated with his alliterative frenzy of "b's"
e) all of the above

....besides, the looters would shove him head-first through a Starbuck's window...

Rain keeping me inside today.
But tomorrow is pink pussy hat protest parade, and sun will be out and shining on us. Remember, we outnumber the deplorables!
