It was a wonderful Christmas gift from my daughter & her significant other: a daytour across the border into the thriving community of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico!

Descending into Mexico, we pedaled maneuvered North to Norzagaray, which parallels the Rio Bravo (Rio Grande to those North of the border), stopping briefly to greet & meet El chocolate moefle Juan (he had re-welded the captains seatback on my Doublevision during a previous biketour.), and continued North until severe cramping from lactic acid compelled a return.

It was perfect for recharging our bodies to keep on pedaling. This great eatery has certainly earned my "Wheel of Approval"!
