Ahhh, summer. The days get hotter and the afternoon clouds on the east only means rain season has started on the Copper Canyon
Being run down and with my Jeep nowhere close to a rolling state, I declared this season a two wheeled year and so far it has been great. Traveling on a bicycle means that preparing for the trip actually consists on more that ordering stuff on the internet .
The plan is simple, take the train at Los Mochis, and ride over the violence infested lower sierra to Bahuchivo, hop on the bikes and eventually arrive to Creel, taking a detour to enjoy the Recowata hot springs and ride the infamous Batopilas road, participate in a MTB festival held in Creel and taking the train back to our hometown.
So the tale starts a couple of weeks before the trip as we build some kind of endurance for the ride ahead.
