Beyond the Divide: Mountain Biking in Baja Sur


Beyond the Divide: Mountain Biking in Baja Sur

There’s more to biking in Baja than the Divide

Twenty minutes after sunset and the sky has a glowing ember look. Night is taking over. In the distance — in the hills — you can see the front and rear lights of a bike. At first, it seems like it must be a motorcycle, but there’s no noise. It’s a mountain bike. The rider zooms up and down small climbs and descents, and then flies past us in a cloud of dust we can’t quite see, but can smell. The person on the bike, whoever they are, is having a great time.

I’m driving the entirety of Baja — with my husband and our dog — from Mexicali to Todos Santos. We started in Colorado. All in, the trip south is over 2,000 miles. We camp a lot — in a little van we built out last year. It’s great, but not quite van life. More, a step up from tent life. We’ve got our mountain bikes — an Ibis Mojo and a Revel Ranger — and a lot of peanut butter.

The Radavist 2022 Calendar: January

“Sonoran Winter” is the first layout of the Radavist 2022 Calendar. It was shot with a Sony A9 and the Tamron 70-180 lens outside of Phoenix, Arizona. It was shot by Josh Weinberg.

“Parts of the Tonto National Forest might not look like much of a forest to you but these desert landscapes are incredibly biodiverse. Sprawling over 2,873,200 acres, it is the largest of the six national forests in Arizona and is the ninth-largest national forest in the United States.”
