Back road bike ride

Spring is here and I felt like a bike ride. Sun felt good, I needed the exercise and I wanted to see how the new Jocotepec bypass road is coming. My back road heads almost west from Joco to highway 15 and intersects where the new bypass road will begin. The new road has been cut thru all the way but still very rough for construction use only. I was hoping the road would be fairly flat to avoid the "jake brake" trucks from echoing across the valley ... but it looks like there will be a pretty good grade on either end.

So my back road is a nice ride. Gentle up slope away from town and a coast on the way back. Scenery and crops will change with the seasons and I'm sure it turns to mud in the rains. Just wish there was a little less garbage dumping which seems common for back roads in Mexico.

Good post. I need to get out on that back road from Barra on my bike to see what is happening -- now that you are not here to report on it.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
