This brings back some memories!! Most of them involve Flor de Cana (the local Rum), and late night missions for ice; however, did manage to hire some beat-up old rental bikes and have a bit of primitive shredding (it was 12 years ago and the bikes were basic)
The standout memory is how several months later, I received a mystery email with photos I'd taken of Ometepe, so sent a cheeky reply, made a new friend and ended up house-sitting in Barcelona because of it!!

Tito is using a EVOC 30Liter FR tour bag on bike and a Evoc bike case to travel by plane, once arrived Tito lets his plane cloth in the case in a hotel and go biking (one month in Nicaragua).
gear list is quite short ... Every cloth are from ION bike, two biking t-shirt, one rain jacket, one short, two pair of socks, two biking under ware, one pair of gloves, one coton t-shirt, one board short, two under ware, sandal, towel, organic soap, medicine, google map images (as a travel map!!), silk bag, pencil, POSCA, watercolor paint, diary, bike tool, two tube, one small locker, one POV camera (plus accessories), one phone (does not call but make pictures and music and reading ...), one pair of biking ION glass, Urge Allmountain helmet.
Nicaragua is a very hot country so Tito was carrying 4 liter of water while on trail, food for half of the day.
It's not a lot, so he had to wash his cloth everyday and keep a simple life. No computer, no headphone, no cool stuff just the necessary !

I lived down there for a while in a place called San Wuan Del Sur. About an hour drive away. Beautiful country. I will retire there

Been there, awesome landscape, nearly died on the boat over though, waves coming over deck and some guy with a bucket trying to bale out the engine room, not so fun...

Cool video - I wish I had a more capable ATB when I was on Ometepe. All I had was a cheap-o rental bike.
Two things though: the video seemed to jump around from the island to the mainland and back, which was inconsistent. Second, approaching a horse from behind as shown in the opening moments of the film demonstrates some poor form. Flame away, but that's a quick way to bring an end to your riding if you do that. If you don't get kicked in the face, you risk getting the rider bucked off.

@ VIVELAVIE hey mate, can you please let us know what did you have in your gear list ?? i mean what was in that ( looks like 30L evoc) bag??

This post is total BS. No one here cares about having just pure fun on a bike...get back to reviewing bikes and parts no one can afford!

Dude on the Lapierre needs a bike fitting badly
Looks like an awesome place to ride tho!

Jealousy is an ugly character trait. Don't be a jackass. Nice video. Thanks for sharing your epic adventure.

Would I like to go to Nicaragua ... sure that would be awesome! Do I think that he would benefit greatly from having a bike fit done? Yes, yes I am absolutely 100% sure he would. Not trying to be a jackass at all.
