Rosarito-Ensenada Bike Ride, September 2012

The idea began in 1979.  A bike ride from Rosarito to Ensenada that would be fun and scenic.  Each year, the race grew more popular, eventually becoming a twice-annual event, now held in May and September. In recent years, for reasons that are elusive — perhaps the media’s obsessive and inaccurate portrayal of Baja as unsafe for tourists — the number of  riders declined.  But this trend began changing in the past year.  Now, the organizers of the event call it Baja’s “largest party on wheels,” and these days it is not just the riders who have fun:  Along the 50-mile bike route, fans cheer and shout and capture future YouTube videos all while enjoying their margaritas or coffees in the mild Baja climate.
