13. 6. Bike park

On our way

🇸🇮 Letos je takšno leto, da se je prva tropska nevihta pojavila še pred uradnim začetkom sezone hurikanov in povzročila kar nekaj škode tudi po Mehiki. Blizu Playe sva imela nagledan en bike park za po koncu karantene, in ko so objavili, da bo odprtje preloženo zaradi porušenih in zaraščenih trailov, sva jih kontaktirala – vsaj toliko iz želje pomagat kot iz obupa nad karanteno in celotno situacijo s potovanjem. Tako smo tri dni mačetali skozi traile v tropski vročini in se borili z roji neusmiljenih komarjev, po koncu pa smo lahko plavali na privat plaži, prava poslastica 🙂

🇬🇧 The tropical storm Christobal opened the hurricane season extremely early this year, because this is how this year apparently works. It caused quite some damage on it’s way, and we saw that a local bike park we planned to visit had many of their trails blocked with fallen trees, unable to reopen. So we offered to help, eager to have something to do and a distraction from these endless weeks of quarantine. We spent three days in the forrest, macheting our ways through overgrown trails with local workers, clearing branches and being absolutely demolished by mosquitos in quantities no one has seen here before. It was hot and humid and tiring in the best possible way, with a fantastic reward of going to the private beach for a swim. Priceless.
