Baja late November

Hi, anyone interested in Riding from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas? I am flexible as well, if there is interest, I could wait to start , (since short notice) til Dec, but prefer no later than Jan 1.

Its about 1000 miles. Interested in culture, sleeping by the sea, eating good food, making friends with locals, seeing Whales!

Let me know if interested.

Baja

Hi Billy,
I hope you find a companion or two; you will love the ride. I did it a couple of years ago and it's still one of my favorites. If you want some additional info, I kept a journal that I hope others find useful. The link is: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/FA2013
Have a great trip! Marti

your note

Hi Caroline,

I am still in Kansas City, MO, planning to head to CA in next couple of weeks. Tell me your style of riding, and what your plans are please. i am flexible, like riding with a partner, plan to camp out most of time, looking forward to meeting locals and sleeping on beach as much as possible.
depending on terrain, I ride, 50 -75mile per day, but flex. I am very simple, riding a Surly LHT, with two rear panniers. Regular gear. You?
Email me bill@poindexterrecruiting.com or call or txt 9132201213 peace!

Have you left yet? I've been

Have you left yet? I've been a member of WS for years and it never occurred to me to check the forums for linking with other riders, just tried through Crazyguy. Anyway I have planned date of travel off of work and already have airline tickets so I don't really have flexibility; I'll be doing this trip Dec 31 to Jan 26 (hopefully with a week of kayaking at Isla Epiritu Santo at La Paz).

I'll be starting in San Diego

I'll be starting in San Diego so I'm going to be over a week behind you two. Safe travels, fyi another cyclists who's doing this ride currently alerted me that there is construction between Ensenada and Punta Colonet. No way to avoid it but good to know its there.

Bill as far as I know there

Bill as far as I know there are signs prohibiting bicycles on 1D, but I've read many accounts of people doing so anyway. From what I gather its safer as there is a decent shoulder on 1D, plus the views of the ocean are pretty nice. Expect a military checkpoint just before Ensenada where you may have to ask for forgiveness if you choose to ride it. If you do I'd like to hear how it goes as I plan to ride that way in a week.
