    Managua for Cyclists

    April 21, 2016 in Nicaragua ⋅ ⛅ 34 °C

    We were welcomed in Managua by Warmshowers host Darling, who is an avid advocate of cycling in Managua and dreaming of an upcoming cycle tour north to Mexico. We enjoyed touring through the lit up 'treed' streets with Darling by bicycle and getting a taste of quesillo and her favourite natural ice cream. We also hit up Fusion, the cyclist friendly bar where Darling and her friends host regular cycling events, for a few celebratory end of tour drinks. Darling helped us immensely in sourcing two bike boxes and tools from local bike shops so we could disassemble and pack up our bikes, and we are so glad that we got to meet her and experience Managua's liberal, pro-cycling subculture. Thanks to Darling for such a nice last couple of days in Nicaragua!Read more
