How am I gonna keep up with you on that? Is it new or used? Sure looks new to me. I will sign up today...6pm bus also. Maybe there will be new caches in Ensenada...
There's at least one more new one by Chuy! since the last time I was there.GC1BEBX
Nice bike Jerry. I'd bring my hybrid, but I'll be looking at Jodi's bike offer.
I'll take the 6p bus also. Last April, Ken was still providing the tasty fish tacos, and as always, complimentary Pacifo's and Corona's.
Birth cert and ID (Ca driver license) is acceptable at the border, but expect long delays returning to the US. It may help to bring a DVD player or mp3 player.
Remember, the September ride can be a warm one; hydrate well before the ride and you should be OK with 60 oz of water during the ride.
I got a location hint for that Chaos cache we DNF'ed last time. And I have that new one, Star of the Sea. Also, will be bringing a cache for a location I scouted last time.
If anyone else is thinking of doing this ride, now is the time. I got this in a newsletter today:
"The Rosarito Ensenada 50 Mile Fun Bicycle Ride has enjoyed a history spanning almost 30 years and has been an icon among cycling events around the world. But the decrease in Baja tourism has reduced attendance to about 5,000 riders: our financial break-even point.
We have decided that this next ride on September 27, 2008, will be our last..."
I'm not sure I can sit on a tiny bike seat for 50 miles. I borrowed a bike and rode 22 miles while I was up in Seattle and was walking funny for two days. I don't know how you guys do it.
Their decrease in Baja tourism is caused by excessive drug lord control of the country and people are tired of the problem that won't go away down there.
Now with that said there is the Midnight Madness ride tonight down town it is a real fun ride without the kidnappings,murders,car jackings, ect...
