Bonaire Biking

There are lots of motorcycles on Bonaire these days, but I'm referring to bicycle bikers here.
Thanks to organizer Miguel Angel Brito, and the great February weather here on Bonaire, we had a great group ride on Saturday. Besides this group shot, Miguel also took lots of pictures of us forging bravely up the many hills along the route.

Miguel is also initiating a series of weekly training rides leaving from his Bonaire Wellness Connexiones headquarters at Eden Beach resort every Saturday at 4pm.

The next Bonaire Wellness Connexions group ride/tour is scheduled for April 7. There is a "fun" race in the works for the month of May and a bigger one in the fall. whoo-whoo!

Bob Lassiter (fourth from the right in the picture) and I are planning to do our annual springtime group ride in Washington Park on March 3. We'll meet at the park entrance right when it opens at 8am. and ride to Slagbaai. Some of us will continue to ride back out to the park entrance, while others will load their bikes onto Bob's pickup, "Big Red" and drive out. The ride into the park is "take it easy and enjoy the scenery" in nature, while the ride back out is somewhat more intense. Let us know if you are interested.

At least some of us will be stopping in Rincon on the way home to refuel with some of the great barbecue at the Rincon Saturday street Market. And then to top off a great day of outdoors excitement on Bonaire, a total eclipse of the moon is scheduled for that evening right after sunset.
