The day started early on Sunday 6th August in Guadalajara being picked up at 07.15hrs. I had agreed to take part in a bike ride the previous evening at a BBQ and had no idea what to expect (I am from England currently working as a volunteer in Guadalajara).
I was picked up by Miguel who I met the night before through a mutual friend and drove to a reunion point were I met the rest of the riders. The group contained a mixture of male and female cyclists varying in age. I was made to feel immediately welcome within the group with some joking had I just flown over from the Olympics to take part.
The ride started with a steady incline which certainly got my heart pumping and feeling like I shouldn´t have had that extra food on offer at the BBQ the night before. Everyone rode at various speeds following what I think was some sort crusade visiting churches and ruins at San Miguel Cuyutlan, San Lucas and San Juan before reaching Lake Cajititlan were we stopped for a well earned rest and some food and refreshments before heading back to the start passing Cuxcomatlan along the way. As the day progressed the sun had come out and there were plenty of stops in between the planned stops.

The group made sure that everyone met together and allowed riders to ride at there own pace with specific riders waiting to make sure no-one was being left behind or alone. The group also carried plenty of equipement for any bike problems or accidents and keep in touch via remote radios.
In all the ride took approximately 5 - 6 hours to complete riding in the Mexican sun appreciating some stunning scenary with plenty opportunity to take photos to remember the day. All in all a very enjoyable day was had seeing sights that the normal tourist would not see spent with really friendly accomadating people - first class day out.
