I plan on a leisurely ride through the Yucatan, exploring beaches, ancient ruins, cultural sites and the landscapes. I will fly into Cancun with my road bike on 1/14/21, from there, head down to Cozumel, and then Tulum, before heading inland toward Valladolid and Chichen itza and then ending the trip in the Merida/Progresso area where my wife will join me. The area is quite flat and the route I have planned will travel around 600 miles - all on paved roads.
I have ridden several multiday bike trips, usually riding 50-70 miles on travel days and 25 - 50 miles on rest days exploring areas of interest. I usually spend the nights split between camping and lodging at hotels, hostals, airbnbs, warmshowers, etc. Hotels / hostals are quite inexpensive in Mexico, so I may forgo the camping entirely for this trip.
I'm a laid-back, semi-retired, married guy from Texas with grown children. I would enjoy some company if anyone has some time next month to join me for part or all of the trip touring the desert --- the weather should be GREAT - no rain, 60s in the morning, mid 80s in the afternoon.
