Martin Soderstrom’s Magic Schoolbus Trip to Mexico

Have vehicle. Will adventure.

Swedish mountain biker Martin Soderstrom had never been to Mexico before deciding to embark on a two-week roadtrip in a friend’s converted schoolbus. Teaming up with Andrew Taylor and photographer Paris Gore, Soderstrom brought not much more than his bikes and some beach gear and started driving south from Los Angeles.

In episode one of Baja or Bus’t, the trio finds everything from epic singletrack to beautiful beaches. Oh, and of course the usual trials and tribulations of traveling in Mexico: running out of gas in the middle of nowhere and credit cards that randomly don’t work, but a warm and genuine welcome feeling from all the locals.
