So Larry and I (Deron) had the pleasure of introducing a new gringo to Oaxaca to the pleasure of mountain biking here. Steve (and his lovely family) hail from the USA (state of Montana) and like many from that state, enjoy spending time in the great outdoors…wherever they may be.
Larry and I thought the “Doctor’s Orders” ride would be a good introduction for a physically-fit, (road) cycling guy like Steve. Since it has been over half a year since I’ve done this nice, rolling cross-country loop, we ended up doing a little different than when we were introduced to it by Dr. Z (due to a bit of confusion of where the hell we were supposed to turn at some junctions). Steve had no problem keeping up with us so the only person I can blame for us not having enough time to include Trail CNP (Calle a Ninguna Parte (Road to Nowhere)) is me. 🙂
Here’s a map of today’s outing (yellow) including the track from the original Doctor’s Orders ride back in 2011-12-21 (magenta).
Note that the elevation plot and distance value above are for BOTH outings. Today’s distance was 26.7km. For hands-on fun with the GPS data, download the KML file (using the link next to the elevation plot above) or the raw GPX data, here.
