As the days get shorter and rainier in Portland, many of us are dreaming of a warm-weather bike trip. Baja has been a popular destination lately, but there are so many logistical concerns in planning. What do you eat? Tent or not? What if your bike breaks? How much water should you carry? Plus-sized or fat bike? Can you buy camp stove fuel down there?
We’ve assembled a panel of riders who’ve toured in Baja to answer your questions. Their trips represented a wide range of riding styles, budgeting, terrain, routes and problem-solving.
We’d be amiss if we did not acknowledge that our panelists and anyone considering a trip to Baja has the privilege of crossing the border, without fear, for the sake of a vacation. With that in mind we are asking for a $5+ door donation, all of which will be donated to Border Angels.
