Hola,

Back from a quick stint in the Mayan Riviera, as you can see I didn't get blown up or shot. It is still as safe as the last time I was here.

What surprised me is that bicycles are being used everywhere, and without the "complete street" philosophy that we fight for here in North America.
There, as well as in other parts of the world the bicycle is just another way to get from A to B.

I had a cargo bike all week to lug kids and scuba equipment around, and the Barcelo Resort staff used cargo bikes for most of their maintenance chores.

If a cargo bike is a common tool in Mexico, why hasn't Toronto adopted this?

Adios!
