Today, I took Calle Chompipe from Desmonte (on Rt 3) down to Orotina. I have been wanting to do this for a while, but did not have the courage to do so until today. On my way, I said to myself, “Just go slow if it is steep, trust your bike, and use your back brake.” But, the road is not a stressful road at all! 🙂
Calle Chompipe is a mix of pavement, artisan concrete, and flagstones.
In the middle is a fancy residential community called Vista Mar with big houses (for sale).
This road has nice views on both sides (left and right) and the inclines are not too steep.
I went straight through Orotina to route 757, another new road for me, then got on 27 to go to Caldera.
At Caldera, I had some ice cream.
I will take this trip from Desmonte to Orotina again (or take it the other way around, coming home).
