When Malua is at anchor we have had to load the bikes into the RIB and ferry them shore, not great if the landing is not good but usually it is at some dock so getting ashore is not a great hassle. You get a smile or two from people on the shore as they see these two bikes dominating the RIB but that soon turn to understand when we ride off down the road.
I have used the bike to just go down to the shop in the morning for the breakfast bread or to go further afield to the larger supermarket but the greatest trips have been the whole day affairs when we set off in one direction to see a particular place and find we land up at a completely different destination having followd a different route.

The bike paths are well used on the weekend with families including little kids cycling along. The more serious group speed by, heads down trying to cover the kilometres. We on the other hand, amble along at a slow pace enjoying the view. We don’t always take the designated route so the other day we landed up at the end of a field with only a river bed to cross. Undaunted we continued through the bush to pop out in the next field with our destination in sight. Have faith I will find you Stanley.
