Costa Rica.... rest and enjoyment prior to La Ruta

Tim´s friend Jorge and his family have been gracious enough to host us for a few days leading up to La Ruta. So far it has been a blast and I´m quickly picking up some Spanish.

Why not start our trip off right with some FRESH coffee thanks to Jorge´s wife.


The man himself.



Tuesday morning we went for a casual ride across San Ramon over to the local swimming hole. Its winter down here so the pool was closed but they still let us take a swim. Beautiful area. It was a constant up and down. A great way to see whats in store for the remainder of the week. So far I´m liking my 32x22 gear choice as much as everyone thinks Tim and I are ´loco´ for riding singlespeeds. Its funny to see everyone´s reactions when they see our bikes.

Jorge´s brother, Tim and Jorge riding through San Ramon. Gotta love Jorge´s shirt. The front says ´Singlespeed´ and the back says ´Have you seen my class?´. A gift from Topher when he visited last year.


Tomorrow, wednesday, the games begin!!
