Also, STEVE was pretty miffed I have yet to drop his name on this here blog! Steve at one point brewed all of our coffee at Stell....now he tightens my cables and all the other things I am incapable of doing on my bike, while wrenching at Cyclery USA...Then he heads over to the Salon to cut bangs and pick what design to my hair should become. The experience is totally rad...I would highly suggest it.
OK, where were we...OH YES!
Do NOT crash on this stuff...we all avoided it...but were well aware of the carnage it could create in an instant!
Super cool option with the race was to purchase, for $20 US a CD with like 100 photos on it! Woohoo! Otherwise I would have never gotten some of the cool shots of the terrain!!
FOCUS! But walking....optional....Maureen did everything in her power to never walk. RAD.
Super smart idea to take brand new white shoes to the jungle. Then hit up a ton of hike-a-bikes. Blisters are yummy.
In the land of Strawberries and Coffee, Maureen did a bang-up job of assimilating.The crew refualing - awesome local fare!
Endorphine high...Heading back to the hotel!
We sent the bikes back to the shop for TLC...the guy on the right rode about 1/3 of the day with me. He spoke no English but knew the trails, which he was poaching, so was an excellent guide. I gave him my USCUP water bottle and he loved it.
I cried Uncle around 7:45pm. I can't remember EVER sleeping that hard. Serious.
Tami and Danny from Mexico City are at the BC Bike Race!!!Pimping Coach Gareth in Santa Barbara Costa Rica. I so do not fit in. Anywhere.
