Much Ado About Mexico Baja California, Mexico forms this issues focussed travel destination for biker couple Alex Wong and Allyson Yik

Bike duo Alex and Allyson Yik give their thumbs up for their trip to Mexico

Finding it too difficult to fill us in on one full year of touring into one or two pages – with biker duo Alex Wong and Allyson Yik visiting too many unforgettable places and finding it challenging having to recollect all the events that took place, this issue’s spotlight on their travels concentrates on one part of their tour to Mexico spanning two out of a total of 12 months spent touring that country.

The adventure to Baja California, Mexico takes place as our adventurous biker couple closes in on the Mexico border on the heels of a cool winter.

Braving the cold winds, even colder rain and sometimes snow, the destination ahead was nothing less than sunny Mexico.

Recalling the trip which required extensive planning way back in December 2013 when Mexico was labelled as a dangerous country as painted by the world press – it being in the news for all the wrong reasons due namely to the Mexican army being at “war: with many drug cartels and reports of killings besides its infamous high crime rate, our biker couple proceeded to visit Mexico with care.

“Our perception of Mexico as a dangerous country was also influenced by the people we met in the US and Canada during our five months on the road as we were warned to avoid travelling in Mexico by almost everyone we met including police officers and even the American-born Mexicans of the dangers awaiting us in Mexico,” recalls Alex Wong.

He adds that at best, only a minority few suggested that they ride across Mexico with no delay.
