In Nov 2017, my friend JT and I spent three days riding the desert and mountains of northeast Mexico. Our purpose was to ride to the Big Bend region of Texas via Mexico. We started in Del Rio, crossed into Mexico, and three days later re-entered Texas at the dusty border town of Presidio. However, while we had a great time there was one road that I really wanted to ride that we missed. I was determined to ride that road. As luck would have it, the opportunity presented itself on Dec 26th, 2017 and JT, Mark Winer, and I set out to ride to Big Bend the back way. Here’s what our proposed route looked like.
