Greetings from Guadalajara! I am having an amazing time down here and I can’t wait to share more about my trip (I return to Portland on Monday afternoon).
On Sunday, I will join some new friends on the “Via Recreativa”. This is an event where 25 km of Guadalajara’s city streets are closed to motorized vehicles. It is what Sunday Parkways wants to be when it grows up.
On Monday, I’ve got an appointment to ride to work with the Mayor (they also call him el Presidente) of Guadalajara. He rides to work and does all city business on a bicycle each third Monday.
What are your plans for the weekend? If you need ideas, check out our Weekend Guide.
Is it still snowing? I hate to say it, but the weather here is magical. Daytime highs in the mid-upper 80s and evenings in the 65-70 range.
I miss being near the Portland bike spirit, so I would really love to hear about your bike plans — especially Mini Bike Winter!
And Happy Valentines Day. Con amor desde Guadalajara!
