Agua Prieta, Sonora to Hermosillo, Sonora
The last leg of the Rat Ride is from Agua Prieta, Sonora to Hermosillo, Sonora and crosses the Sierra Madre Occidental. This was my route for today. It gave me a chance to see what this section is like. The next time that I am on this road it will be night time, and if the weather pattern continues, probably raining for most of the route.
Mountains, curves, vados, small towns, topes (speed bumps Mexican style), rain, and darkness. What more could anyone want for a bike ride. Well, maybe snow, ice, and cold, but you can't always have everything.
A Vado is a ford. When it is raining or there is water in the stream, the water runs across the road.
