Beach Bicycle Cruising in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize
Here is a picture of my Barbie doll pink Beach Cruzer. She's only 6 months old, but she looks ancient. I've already had to replace a main spring bolt and tube in the front tire, and I haven't yet replaced my basket, but I need to do that soon too due to the nuts rusting. Between the heavy salt air and the unforgiving cobblestones in and around town, it's no wonder.
You must wonder what people do for fun in Ambergris Caye. Well, riding my bike --most days ---into town is one of my personal main events. But it isn't just riding my bike into town like how I would imagine you would think of it, though. On the contrary, I ride on the beach, along the length of the island.
I ride along narrow paths, ducking under palms trees, clipping past men with pitchforks throwing golden seaweed into wheel barrows, up hills, and over stone walls. Yes, over stone walls! Down, up, over, cut to the right, stand up, peddle hard, bend around ...... it's quite the ride.
Those are my wheels! :)
