Another Lesson Learned

When riding a bike with no front brakes and back brakes that aren't tight enough, don't go flying down the bridge and onto a road filled with potholes - you'll scare the crap out of tourists that think you're going to crash into them as they go for a leisurely stroll, and you'll scrape up your toes when you try to slow down...

Ow.
From now on.... I'll walk the bike down.

  2. Ouch! I suggest you get your brakes serviced at El Guapo, just south of the bridge. It's not safe at all not having good brakes. I can't tell you the number of times someone has pulled out in front of my bike without looking (pedestrian, cyclist, golf cart, or taxi), and I've had to brake HARD and FAST. Please get those brakes serviced!

    1. El Guapo.... Thanks Emily, I have to back up to Reef Village today, maybe I'll try to find it.
      I've noticed that I need a bell, too...
