Well i started this topics about buying bikes so i'll finish it....
I went over to a nice little bike shop on Avenida Aviacion in Surco, and picked up a brand new mountain bike for 250 soles, which for me was a bargain although unfortunately may attract the wrong kind of attention if i have to ride it through unsafe areas!
I know there are some lovely routes in Miraflores and San Isidro to cycle round and i intend to explore those and many others over the coming weeks.
Thanks to all, JS

But from there to reality is total different story. Limeños are not ready for that.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Limeños are already making “Cannondales” in their back yards. Prior to coming to Lima, the movie 10000 BC was about to be released or was already on US theaters, don’t quite remember, and soon after arriving I visited a cousin who was already watching it with subtitles and all on his DVD player! dude I was like WTF…and he commented happily that “Jumper” (also a new release) will “soon be out”. I just cracked up and he couldn’t quite understand why.
