We rode our bikes from Grand Caribe into town today. The San Juan "detour", as Diane says, is a real mess. The mud is gooey, sticky, slippery, and wheel-sucking. I was peddling like crazy and praying I wouldn't go down. Mind you, I have been riding my bike to town nearly daily since September, so I am more experienced in dodging and dealing with the mud and puddles on a bike than someone newer to the island or a tourist on a rental bike. I feel for them, I really do.
I was excited to see the improvements in the road in front of Reef Village as those road-width deep puddles got really old, but now there's this to replace it.
It's always something!
