    My partner Karla and I joined a group of slackliners who were in the look for a new spot to set up a highline in the town of Yécora, Sonora, although we were on a different mission: to ride a route known for hosting an annual event consisting of 47 kilometers (29 miles) of dirt roads through the forest in the Sierra Madre portion of Sonora.

    Sitting some 300 kilometers (186 miles) west of our hometown Hermosillo, Yécora is right at the border with the state of Chihuahua.

    We began climbing on a dirt road, then the concrete appeared: the unmistakable sign that steep is just about to get steeper. After 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) the terrain flattened out and my quads were burning already!

    We made our way through apple and quince orchards, which locals offered for us to enjoy. A long descent over fist sized rocks delivered us with sore hands and squeaky brakes to the tiny town of Bermúdez, where we took time to chill by the river.

    We would usually be looking for some interaction with locals, but virus awareness keeps us from venturing any closer and we just waved from afar. With a shared but unspoken reluctance, we got back on the road, aware that all the elevation lost must be regained.
