Well folks, it’s finally happening. South Coasters are going south of the border.
Harry and I have planned a wonderful short but oh-so-sweet 3-day-ride/eat/drink trip to Baja California, MX.
Headcount cap: 10 riders total!
Signup deadline: September 16th, 2022
IMPORTANT: Valid passport is required
 
Itinerary
Day 1: Friday October 14th, 2022
We will start the trip by meeting at Bravo Burger in San Juan Capistrano for a light breakfast.
KSU 8:00AM
We’ll stop before crossing the border to top off, relief bladder and buy pesos. Crossing border around 10:30 at Chula Vista and head south on MX 1D.
This is a toll road and the ride leader will pay for everyone’s tolls, no need to have a panic attack with Mexican change for the first time. Just buy the rider leader a beer later.
We will stop an hour or so later south on 1D to have another bladder relief, and take some selfies at a lookout spot before we enter Ensenada.
Lunch time at a local restaurant right outside of Ensenada.
We will check into our hotel after lunch, relax, unpack, put on our flip flops and meet later in the evening to walk around the city and prepare for dinner. Then we will have dinner that may or may no involve meet sweats, giant flan desserts and delicious margarita pitchers that keep on coming. This will wrap up Friday night.
