Every year, riders reenact the 1810 ride of Don José María Morelos y Pavón and the heroes of the Mexican revolution. We have many ranches and fine, working horses throughout the Bajio. I love the juxtaposition in the top photo – a boy riding a bike in traffic with a cell phone against an image of a historic rider from 1810 – 2oo years of history in one photo.
