Ride Report #3: Mina Clavero to Mendoza

After an amazing ride from Cordoba into the Sierras I stumbled across the fantastic Andamundos hostel next to the river. It was the first place I stopped in and proved to be a lucky find. By 9pm the place was filling back up with folks from their day adventures and by 11pm we were all gathered around the table to a delicious chicken and veggie dinner, with live music of course.

I really had an amazing time with my new Argy friends and was able to practice my spanish and embarrass myself on the salsa floor. The tempted me to stay with a trip to the swimming holes of the river, but my long time pal was waiting for me in Mendoza.

Unlike the ride form Cordoba to Mina Clavero, this was flat, straight and un pocito aburrido. But the weather was nice and I was enjoying the day.

State line.

I made it to Medoza around 6pm after 5 hours of pinning it to meet my college buddy, Adam, for a beer then a night out of wine tasting.
