Cycling doesn’t appear to be a big draw in Sayulita, Mexico. Everyone is much more interested in being out on the water – surfing, boogieboarding, bodysurfing, SUP-ing. Some of the locals get around by bike, however, and I saw evidence of a nascent bike culture percolating underneath the surfy exterior. I was stoked to see what may be the smallest cargo bike in the world – a kids cargo trike. Very cool. The number of spokes on a wheel in Mexico still often outguns most other North American styles….even if they are rusty. And while e-bikes haven’t made a dent, from what I can tell people are still interested in putting some extra power between their legs. Next time I’m in town, I’ll be renting a bike and cycling up the coast a bit. This time round I, too, only had eyes for the sea.
