Pedal Adventures is a collection of stories about cycling, life, family, road schooling, and a nomadic travel lifestyle. We're a nomadic family with a basecamp in Colorado. In search of singletrack, smooth roads and occasional surf. Living an imperfect life perfectly.

We actually made it through the whole month without incident. A rental car to a remote beach on dirt and sand, taxi ride and a shuttle bus (twice) on rough dirt roads. No problems at all.

Luckily our exit from the USA and into Costa Rica was very anticlimactic! We flew out of Denver, CO around 6AM, through Houston, TX and landed in Liberia by late afternoon.
