I woke up with some sore legs, funny how a little different use of the legs puts the body into over drive. So I figured it might be a good idea to give the legs a rest. Further, I hadn’t really looked around Antigua, it’s a pretty town, though over touristed. I wanted to walk around and see some bits and pieces. Hannah had some work to do and I figured we might get together to get up to Lagos atitlan and take the riding from there.

On the bike front, I had picked up some loose spokes on my rear wheel and given there was this great bike shop, the Antigua bike co-op, I decided to get my wheel tuned. I got my bike back in the evening with the spokes tightened evenly and wheel trued. Awesome.

I walked around atitlan, did some bike stuff thro the day, got some food at the market, some awesome coffee at a local roasters and generally chilled out thro the day.

After a bit of internal debate, I decided to take a bus to Atitlan and catch up with Alex and Julia for a bit before all of us get back on different routes. It was a bit expensive to take my bike on the shuttle, but I figured a few days more of hanging out with good friends was worth it and that’s that. A couple more days of tourism and back on the bike again! Whoopie!
