On Sunday, November 29th, I joined Humberto’s Team for a ride to Puriscal, then Caldera. Two other groups joined us (folks from Sarchí, a few Rejuntados (Robert and JM), and Luis Herrera’s friends, Danny, Manuel, and Alvaro, whom I had not seen in quite a while).
After getting lost in Turrucares with Robert (Hahahaha!), he and I headed to Fresh Market in Ciudad Colón to wait for the group. I admit, I like getting lost!! It has been fun for me to see how Sahara can handle dirt roads. However, I think I need to start using Google maps. 🙂
Sahara got a flat on the way down to Orotina, which surprised me because the day before I had taken it to have the tire checked out because it had a slow leak. Of course, they did not find a leak and said it may be the valve. So maybe something was in there that punctured the tire more during the ride. Or maybe it was just coincidence. It was easily fixed with a Taco, another item to put on my shopping list.
My heroe for the day was Jimmy Tobon!! He just grabbed Sahara and took fast care of the situation. I was so impressed with his handling of it all for me and with his fast, fun riding!! He took the lead and took care of the group. He looks totally at home on a motorcycle, in full control. Wow!
Riding back on the Cambronero with Jimmy and Jose Miguel was lots of fun — fast and furious! Hahaha!
Overall a great day. The summer skies were gorgeous, the curves fun, and it was nice to see so many friends, as well as to meet new people. Riding is one of the things that makes me incredibly happy. How lucky can I be?!?
