This would be my last full day of cycling in Mexico on the Panamerican bike tour. Here's the daily blog cycling from Palenque to Frontera Corozal.
Cycling to Frontera Corozal in Mexico
(Blog post written February 28 2010)
A long, long days cycling. I'm not sure how bright it is to cycle 163 kms in a day with the amount of gear I have, but anyhow, that's what we did.
The road took us through the small villages of the Chiapas region, where the Zapatista movement still has a lot of influence. These signs were outside many villages.
The Mexico Guatemala border
We managed to get to Frontera Corozal, the border town on the Mexican side with Guatemala, in one hit which was pretty good, although if the wind had been with us rather than against, we would have avoided cycling the last 10 kms in the pitch black. Don't try that at home kids !
After asking many friendly people for directions, we eventually managed to find our way to a Posada, where showers were very much needed !
After, we went out for something to eat, and found a nice little tacqueillera (probably not how it's spelled) where the girls were chatty and the food great.
