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

By Gabriel Amadeus Tiller

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.

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!

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!
