Rudy -- My Terrific Cycling guide in Mazatlan, Mexico

In December 2022, I went to Mazatlan Mexico to go cycling. I had done a little bit of bicycle riding before as an adult but I hadn't done it very much or very consistently or for very long time. I thought it would be a good way to jump start a new hobby and getting shape a little bit by starting cycling on a trip. This worked out really well. I found Rudy who was perfect for what I needed. We would meet most every morning and go for about 4 or 5 hours.

What was especially important was that he took great care to make sure that I was okay. Of course even the most conscientious cycling guide can't prevent any accident from happening but Rudy was extremely cautious and watched out for me. Towards the end of the trip, towards the end of a bike ride, I did bike into some sand and fell off the bike. Fortunately I bruised my hip very slightly but otherwise was fine.

This was also at the time that there was conflict between the Sinaloa cartel and the army. In fact the Doubletree Hotel issued a letter that all guests should stay in the hotel on a particular day all day! Rudy was also very aware of this and turned us around on one particular trip! But we were able to find a path in Mazatlan itself so I was able to get in my full biking quota for that day as well.
