We found some hills!
We used to joke about how the terrain in Grenada was uphill wherever we went. Now that we’ve been riding here for a few days, with all the wicked hills that we’ve found, it seems as if the area around where our daughter and her family live is entirely similar. I’ve come to learn that this area is quite popular with dirt bike riders, and that’s apparent from some of the trails that we’ve come across. On the bright side, we’re gaining some excellent experience on how to push our bikes up very steep hills!
As you can see in the photos on this post, and especially in the cover photo, we spent some time fitting our bikes with the rest of the bags that we had made by Rogue Panda. We’ve also had numerous packages delivered from Amazon containing some of our camping gear, so we added some of that stuff to the bags. None of that helped with the big hill pushing that went on yesterday, but it’s all good practice!
Hills, and more hills!
Now with helmet, and water bottles!
I’d like to give a shoutout to a local bike store, Citrus Cyclery. We went there to pick up a helmet and some other bike-related stuff, and the guy that helped us there, Chris, was excellent!
