    Recalls of a bike trip (Mzt-Gdl-CNV-VDB)

    It was great!!
    I rode once with Dr Coraje and the Maromeros in La Primavera, we rode a route which i believe it was called "la cabrona" and it was pretty fun and challenging.
    Then i rode La Heradura in Cuernavaca, and a trail near Casas Geo which was wonderfull, there was lots of climbing whith beautifull views and rewarded with fast flowing singletracks and some ultra technicals drops and bridges.
    I would like to Thank Sergio Moulin for all the help, if you go there visit his shop near Zapata monument.
    Then i rode in Valle de bravo at Monte Alto, which has over 30 miles of dirt roads and sigletrascks for any level of riders. You get to climb a lot or not, you ride fast singletracks or rock gardens is all up to you and the route you decide to take.
    Then i went on a tour with Pablo of Pablo`s bikes to Temascaltepec, and it was the best ride ever, 7 kms of climbing rewarded with 20 kms of downhills, singetracks and a very fun part of downhills of slickrock with plenty of lienes to choose from with drops, natural ramps, rocks and ruts. It was wfun as hell!!

    Now i`m back in Mazatlan with my disc brakes rubbing and no brake pads left, but i would like to give props to the crossmax rims for staying true through all the punishment, my geax tubeless for not pinching or getting flat and my reba fork for giving me tons of control.
    And last but not least to my Kona Kikapu which climbed and descended like a pro, and never ever whinned or complained.

    I hope to be able to do another bike trip soon, i met great people, rode great trails, discovered riding skills that i didnt know i had, enjoyed the adventure of discovering new trails on my own and along with more than 20 other riders.

    Happy new year to all!!

    That sounds awesome. I'm very jealous, didn't get to ride over the Christmas vacation. Hmmm, maybe we should start a Best Mexico Trails thread with maps and stuff.

    Of course it's not fair to tell us about these great rides without even a couple of pictures.

    Let me correct you

    The complete loop is called "la perrona", it departs from "el ocho y medio" climbs la mosca and descends la mosca inversa, rides along la cerca to start descending by el hoyo negro to climb back la precios√*sima and la glorieta. The climb of la mosca al reves is technical and breathtaking (am I right Carlos?) and then the reward with a sweet singletrack and a rocky descent called "in your face", a vereda by the side of a cliff and back to the main gravel road to 8 y medio.
    And Carlos, do you remember why Jalisco is called that name? Jal and more jal. Our word for sandstone.
    Saludos, Pornstar.

    sorry about the pics

    Im sorry about the pics guys.
    Dr coraje was a witness of me trying to have some pics, i bought a cheap disposable camera whose pictures i was planning to scan over back home, but as it often happens to me... I lost it.
    But at least you are getting a brief description of the trails and where and how to find them if you ever get interested.
    And of course you are welcome to post pics of you riding them.


    Doc coraje.- Jaja the climb was breathtaking indeed. Fortunately i didn`t sufer the altitude in Cuernavaca, neither in valle of course i wasn`t able to clmb as hard as in my home town, but nothing compared as what happened to my heart rate in GDL that day.
    Sorry to hear about the shotgun episode you should post around that story in this and other forums to see if maybe someone gets o see the bike around.

    Sorry Mr Arivas

    I almost forgot to thank arivas for the unsuccesfull climbing of the Toluca Nevado.
    Unfortunately the most anticipated part of the trip wasnt doale due to a problem with the hotel reservations of me and my folks.
    And the fact that El Nevado was covered in snow, and all the mud and water runs that implied.
    Maybe he can post some pics he told me he had done some good riding before?

    Thanks arivas and maybe we can do some riding some other time.

    Never mind Mr. Pornstar! Glad to see that in the end you had a great trip! It was fortunate that we didn't tried El Nevado that day as the acces was closed due to the snow! Some friends told me later about that!
    That week I rode "Los Tuneles" which is near to the volcano, It's some part fire road, a lot of single track with logs laying there and some rocky stuf... I didn't take pictures as I was more worried keeping myself in the bike! btw. It is called "los tuneles" becuse there are some big tunnels in the top part of that mountain, it's weird, I suppose that a railway was supposed to go there... Anywas it was fun.
    The picture enclosed is taken from Cacalomacan the second week of December, maybe not the best but I will improve.
