29 April 2009: Mulege – Buenaventura beach, 43km, 500m up and down Once we managed to leave Mulege, we quickly started climbing, cutting off a rough piece of coastline.

Because they are (not) cotton and lightweight? As a BikeTraveller you need to combine functionality as much as possible, so you can minimize the stuff you are […]
