THE FLAT TIRE IN MANZANILLO

PREVIOUS / NEXT

LIFESTYLE by KRISS on 18 november 2015

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny morning and we decided to tale the bicycles and ride for a few kilometers to start the day.
I happen to be riding the one bicycle that has to seats which is great because I can sit my youngest one in front of me and the road is safer for her and everyone else that way ! But this very bike already gave me a flat tire last saturday in Puerto Viejo, fortunately close to a repair shop.
The repair took 45 minutes (yeah that long) which gave us time to enjoy a Pipa fria (cold coconut) in a little diner by the road.

Anyways, everything seemed right when we got the bike back and we started cycling yesterdays like everything was fine.

And everything was fine for a few kilometers from Puerto Viejo to Manzanillo.
We stopped many times and shot many animals (with the cameras).

In manzanillo we witnessed vultures waiting on a dead tree and the scene seemed right out of a western.

On our way back I started to notice I had struggle cycling and this wasn’t just muscular fatigue.
Yes, as I anticipated my front wheel was almost flat so we got off the bike and started pushing.
A few kilometers down the road, a family were doing some repairs on a beautiful opened house and I stopped to ask for a pump.
We struggled finding one that fitted but we managed to get flat inflated again.

This kept us going for no more than a few corners and the tire burst.
Damn, we were still 8 km away from the house and I had to push my way back under the burning midday sun.

A few hours later we were back home after a break by the beach to cool down and all of us needed some Aloe Vera to soothe our burns.
We are fortunate to be used to the sun in Andalusia and there are no signs of it today.

We did repair the wheel with the help of our lodger and they simply repaired the wheel with a too large chamber the first time !

Ok I let you enjoy a few pictures of our morning trip anyways ! Pura Vida !
