Maintaining a keen awareness of your surroundings is one of the best things you can do to keep yourself safe when cycling on the road.

Baja Bicycle Tour Gear List

Unlike other tours I've taken south of the border, this one presented some unique challenges. For starters, the route called for a mix of pavement, sand, and gravel roads.

Here's a rundown on the route, bike selection, equipment, and tools.

Blackburn AirStik 2Stage Pump
