I've lead a pretty sheltered life. This was the first time i'd been to Mexico and the first time id left the country. So now, having been and come back, it seems perfectly obvious that while in Mexico i would see so many locals riding bicycles.
They're everywhere, because they're so functional. When you don't have a car and you need to get somewhere... the bicycle is a great option. I'm sure it's this way in many less fortunate countries, bike's play an important role for lot's people.
It would be interesting to see the statistics on bike riders from America and Mexico and compare the percentage's of those who ride because they have to and those who ride for fun.
Flip flops and low tire pressure seemed to be the theme in Tulum. And a rusty chain was a must. Two passengers per bike was twice as nice but three was even better. Enjoy the pic's.
Tomorrow i'll have some food photos for you. The Chipotle burrito's were out of this world.
Love ya, bye
