Travel Report:

This ride started in the eastern sub-urban train terminal La Paz. From there I took the paid highway to Puebla, passing on my way: Huixtoco toll collect station (elev: 2250 m), Llano Grande summit (3220 m), Texmelucan (2250 m), and from here, direct to the beautiful city of Puebla :-)

One little problem: as I had wrongly started to ride too late, in the last kilometers towards Puebla the night caught me, and worst of all: owed to the fact that the highway had been expanded to six lanes, the side lane where cyclists usually ride to arrive at Puebla was non-existant. In this fashion, without diurnal light, without side lane, and without cycling lamps, I was not able to cycle in the main (car) lane. On some parts I had to abandon the highway and cycle at the dirt side of the highway, but without sun or moon, this task probed to be a very difficult one. The good news was that it were only some segments that had not the side-lane. Once in the entrance of Puebla, I was again safe :-)

I took some photos of the road and also, from the city of Puebla. You can see them at the following photoset.

Thank you for reading. Till the next travel.
