Bicycle Touring Mexico During Covid

In August of 2020, I decided to go bicycle touring in Mexico during COVID. More specifically, the Yucatán Peninsula.

Before I get into details, I’d like to mention that I myself had contracted COVID a month earlier and had tested negative before leaving, so I was confident I couldn’t spread or get it again. Even so, I exercised every caution. I wore a mask and socially distanced whenever I was in public.

Because it’s the main artery connecting North and South Vietnam, Highway 1 isn’t the best road for bicycle touring. It’s busy and loud.

Like a shy fish, I’d settle into the center of the school. The plan was to follow the highway South to Vinh, then turn West towards Laos.

Bicycle Touring Laos

BICYCLE TOURING SE ASIA PART 3

I’m in Laos. I’m on the other side of the world riding my bicycle. Everyone I know and love is over 8,000 miles away. Most of the time it gives me a thrill to focus on this. Other times, I’m overwhelmed with loneliness.

Bicycle Touring Along the Mekong River

When I first entered Laos the children would shout “hello” as I rode by on my bicycle. Then one day, amongst the barrage of hellos I heard a single “sabaidee.” I didn’t think much of it, but over the next hundred or so miles the hellos slowly disappeared and were replaced entirely with sabaidee.
