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.

Bicycle Touring Cambodia

BICYCLE TOURING SE ASIA PART 5

It was still dark, but I was racing through the city to make it to Angkor Wat before sunrise. I arrived with only minutes to spare, and it was brilliant. I then spent the rest of the day riding from temple to temple. There were busloads of tourists, but since I was on a bicycle, I easily avoided the crowds. My day in Angkor Wat was hands down the highlight of my time in Cambodia.

BICYCLE TOURING SE ASIA PART 6

I found a route towards Bangkok that took off me of the main highway. I was feeling horrible, but the backroads offered some of the best touring of my trip. The scenery was spectacular. There were dirt roads that meandered through lush green rice patties and limestone towers. The route was peaceful and empty except for the occasional village.

BICYCLE TOURING SE ASIA PART 1

I was so incredibly nervous. The traffic in Hanoi was intimidating. How the hell was I going to ride a bike through it? I left before sunrise on an early Saturday morning hoping to beat the crowds. It didn’t work. There were bicycles, mopeds, cars, buses, and people moving in every direction. Lights were flashing, and horns were honking. It was sensory overload.
