December 2021: A short bicycle trip, largely along the pacific coast of Mexico

I had to make a last minute plan since my trip to England over Christmas holidays had to be cancelled at the last minute due to the Omicron variant. The easier thing to do was to take the bicycle on a bus to Acapulco and ride along the pacific coast. It was a bit too warm and also the coastal ride was not like what I had expected. The road, for most part was away from the coast, and so I didn’t have much of the expected sea view. The occasional glimpses of the sea was not bad though. I quite liked the town of Zihuatenejo. After Colima, I turned towards the mountains and it was lot more pleasant. Even though it was some hard work, the views were rewarding and also the sun was a bit kind on my skin. Some pictures of the trip below.
