The halftime scoot (parte tres)…

November 3, 2010

This next pedal procession took us along highway 190, completely skirting Mexico D.F. , Puebla and the likes.  As much as we were curious to see what the biggest city in Mexico looks and feels like, the involvement of getting ourselves and our bikes in and around it was not something we really wanted to deal with.  Instead we went through the smaller cities of Izucar de Matamoros, Acatlan and Huajuapan de Leon, before the final stretch to Oaxaca.

 

The riding was again fantastic, the roads not terribly trafficked and the scenery something to occupy our eyes' time with...

The road signs however proved to be a bit off. Here is one we saw along the way, listing the kilometers to Oaxaca at 222...

...and another, about 45 kilometers after the first. This happened several times over the course of two days and it was always amusing. Luckily, our Guia Roji lists pretty accurate and reliable kilometer distances...

And we can never get enough...

...of ending our days...

...with sunsets as spectacular as these...

Just one of the many stalls we passed as we got closer to Oaxaca, selling flowers in preparation for Dia de Muertos...

Just perfect for an end of the day rinse off...

Even as we got closer and closer to the city (I have to admit that at this point we were riding on the Autopista) the scenery was still beautiful...
