Best I have done yet --- Ruta de la Sierra Alta. Starts in Douglas, AZ/Agua Prieta, Sonora, MX and ends in Creel, Chihuahua, MX. This route is changing as progress is made, but runs through the towns of Bavispe, Bacerac, Huachinera, Mesa Tres Rios, El Largo, Madera, Tutuaca, Piedra Azules, Basaseachi and then Creel. Takes approximately four days to complete.

There's one pucker road I really like in Guatemala. It takes you from CA1 to San Pedro la Laguna.

This is before it gets good:


I don't have any of the good part. No where to pull off, too narrow to stop on the road, too steep, etc.

Name: CA4 (I think)
Start: Nahuala
End: San Pedro la Laguna
Country: Guatemala
Distance: 15 miles more or less
Takes you from CA1 to San Pedro, starting at around 8000 feet elevation to 5200 feet. The middle section is very steep, narrow, twisty, with rocks on one side, and air on the other. It is paved. Watch for buses, trucks, cars, animals, etc. There is danger of your brakes overheating. It is hard to coast in first gear and make the corners without braking.

I would put the Continental Divide Ride (the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route - GDMBR - as it is more commonly known amongst cyclists) - on the list of the top 50. 2500+ miles of pure bliss. The scenery just goes, and goes, and goes. And mostly offroad.

I have plenty of good high res pics if one is needed.

Well it's out.


Can't find a print copy here in Montreal.
Anybody out there subscribed to MCN?

Looks like they used one of my photos of Berkley John and Jeff taking-off down the Baja peninsula

I bought MCN today but left it at work so can't give more than an overview. Part one covered eurasia & normerica. ROW is next week.

The "huge thanks to..." paragraph was most complimentary towards ADVrider. And to ADV's members; It even gave special thanks to everyone here who contributed. And named us all. Okay, I assume it did, I didn't go through the entire "thank you" list checking name for name.

Good result I'd say. Good for MCN and its readers, and a good bit of advertising for ADVrider.

Scan in high res please, I'm willing to pay for a hard copy, there is no way I can get one in Serbia! So if anyone could collect all the numbers with this story and send 'em to me, I would pay for expenses!
