help needed to cycle into Mexico city this week
Posted March 7th, 2010 - 2:19 pm by from Prague, Czech Republic (Permalink)
Hi there,

I'm a solo woman on a big Americas cycle tour - I've ridden from Alaska to Central Mexico so far. See www.wishfish.org is you are interested to see some photos and stories about this trip.

I'm currently heading for Mexico City and I've decided to be brave (or crazy) enough to try to cycle into it but I would really love it if some local cyclists would be able to act as guides for me in this project.

Advice about the route and any other information would also be gratefully received, even if you can't physically ride with me. I am coming from the direction of Toluca (I am currently in Zitacuaro) and hope to arrive in Mexico City by the end of this week - the exact day is flexible but I am meeting a friend who is flying in from Australia on Saturday 13th.

I'm not sure where I will be staying in Mexico City - I don't have accommodation organised yet so I would probably say "yes, please" if someone could offer me a bed for a night or two, as well ;-) but when my friend arrives I probably will go to a hotel.

It would also be great if I could leave my bike and bike stuff somewhere while I have some off bike adventures with my non-cycling Australian friend.

And it would be great just to meet some active cyclists and get some cycling news while in DF.

I understand Spanish (both written and spoken) but writing in Spanish is hard for me. Feel free to reply to this post in Spanish.

Hi Anna.

again my answer for the more cyclist.

Aliosha is on the way from Manzanillo, Colima to Veracruz... maybe u can go with him a little bit of his trip or in your trip...

From Toluca, you need take "Paseo Tollocan", then Toluca - Mexico high way, and finally, in the "Y", i recommended take right way (Mexico-Toluca, then Reforma) if you go to the center, but if you go to the north, is better by Naucalpan (Cuajimalpa-Lerma)

every time you can call me, 5518091871

i prefer if u want and can come alone, its fine for me, but its very necessary, emergency or anything, i will go with you to toluca, by bus or on my bike.

i can save your bike things or anything else, while you enjoy the time with your non cyclist friend or Mexico...

well, see you soon.
