From Ensenada to San Felipe – first uphill experience and flat tires

You are currently viewing From Ensenada to San Felipe – first uphill experience and flat tires

In Ensenada we could stay for a night with our warmshowers host Chema, a very nice helpful guy. After some tacos and a ride to the supermarket (1st flat tire of Sämi) we checked together the two options to go South, and we decided to take the route through the mountains, from the pacific side to the golf side. Less traffic and more beautiful landscapes. Our goal for the next day was to reach Ojos Negros, a village around 40 km from Ensenada and around 1000 m above sea level. Anna was a bit worried about this uphill challenge, but guess who was struggling more on the way there… Exactly, Sämi (with his next flat tire). Nevertheless, we reached Ojos Negros in the afternoon without any bigger problems. The next 4 days we were blessed with a lot of rain, fog and headwind, we successfully passed our first military checkpoint and reached San Felipe. We didn’t plan to stay there longer than 1-2 nights, but it should be different….
