Cinco De Mayo y Donkeys

battleofpuebladonkeys On the 5th of May 1862, 4000 Mexican soldiers, against overwhelming odds, defeated a French army invasion of 8000 during the Battle of Puebla. Though the victory was short-lived, it represented a great morale boost for Mexico. Three years later Mexico expelled the French with help from the Untied States.

    Hola ciclistas!

    I’ll be trainpacking/hosteling through Cali next week and the Bike Happening sounds like awesome con queso. But, I’ll have no bike and must catch a train early Friday AM, making an overnight rental return difficult. Does anyone have an old loaner so that a wayward cyclist might participate in the ride? I’m 6′4″ so a largish frame would be bueno. Shocks, pegs and the ability to take sweet jumps would be lucky, but as long as it goes when pedaled and stops when needed I’d be happy.

    Muchas gracias,
    Flagstaff, AZ

    If you are staying at the Hostel in SLO I think they might have loaner bikes.

    Thanks for the tip! The Hostel fixed me up with some sweet friction-shiftin’ 1980’s teal goodness. The ride was hoot!
