All the tools and spares I carry on my 500exc to ride RTW
From Guatape to Medellin we took a dirt track via Alejandria and Conception until we met the pavement, it had rained the night before and lots of baby heads for the whole way
San Blas’ largest pile of garbage isn’t a pile of plastic bottles on a beach somewhere it is this…It was put there by what can only be described as a total idiot, and by put there I will explain.
We’d towed around 100km already, what the hell lets do it some more, we’d become very efficient at towing averaging around 70kph on the flat ground heading to Bayamo. I knew the road back to Santiago, I’d ridden sections of it before, maybe half was freeway so the best road surface Cuba could offer.
He smiled, “you probably don’t know that nobody uses that road anymore, it has river crossings and gets remote…but it’d be fun on those bikes unless it rains tonight.”
It rained all night long, torrential rain!
We got up in the morning, he asked “pavement or glory?’
We made this hill climb that is way steeper than it looks, the locals watched amazed that we would attempt it and then informed us there’s an easier road off to the right as this has only been used for foot traffic for years, haha!
