Town has had a string of warm and breezy evenings recently that have been prime for biking, especially up on some of the new trails in town, the Highlands Loop and the Highlands Downhill. A great, short route there is up McHenry from Central, then cutting along Zapotal straight to the Highlands connector. From there, you can ride the Highlands Loop both directions, before heading down the Highlands Downhill.
Yesterday, a group of evening riders timed the departure just as the sun reached the top of Plaza Central, and caught the sun setting right as they crested onto the Highlands Downhill. The result was a 10-15 minute downhill burst surrounded by full panoramic views of Bahía de Potrero and the mountains of Guanacaste.
