Well as I said, the guys at moto cafe and CATours, really helped me out, including giving me directions for a fun route over to lake Atitlan. It was a little tricky, but they obviously know the area really well because from memory, they were able to give me great turn-by-turn directions.
The best part for me was that it gave me something fun to get me moving again. Antigua was starting to feel very comfortable and it was really fun to see people from my school again. Unfortunately, with my bike maintenance I was not able to do as much as I wanted visiting. The best part of traveling is meeting new great people. The worst party is always having to say goodbye.
Buy it was a fun ride up the mountains/volcanoes. Some good views looking back toward Antigua.
And on the other side looking west.
It was a great combination of curvy pavement and relatively easy dirt roads. They even throw in a water crossing were a bridge is washed out.
Eventually, you come up with a view over the lake.
