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.

Border Angels is an all volunteer, non profit organisation that advocates for human rights, humane immigration reform, and social justice with a special focus on issues related to issues related to the US-Mexican border. Border Angels engages in community education and awareness programs that include guided trips to the desert to place water along migrant crossing routes as well as to the border to learn about the history of US-Mexico border policy and experience the border fence firsthand.
