Top of the World (Irazú Volcano)

Yesterday I rode with Honda Red Riders to Rancho Redondo (Route 218), through Tierra Blanca, up to Irazú volcano.

Felix Franco, leader of Honda Red Riders said to me: “Sós un Fenomeno!” Hahaha! Great compliment. I’ll take it! 🙂


This is a ”must do” riding trip, as the road is smooth, and it has some wonderful, wide curves. The views are amazing. It’s a lovely part of the country. I did not take many photos, however.

We went on Route 218, which I have ridden many times, and also highly recommend.

At the top of Irazú, you are basically above the clouds on a moonscape type of environment. It is usually cold up there, so bundle up.

I am quite happy to be making new friends!


Still trying to teach the H for Honda Happiness! Hahaha!


After this, I went to a ladies Christmas Coffee and also had fun with them!


It is as if I am finally finding all kinds of community, joining different “tribes.” I like it. 🙂 Riding Storm! makes it easy for me to get around. Otherwise, driving here would be impossible!



Song: I’m on the top of the world. 🙂
