We're going to Aruba in May & I wanted to get some feedback about road riding in Aruba. Also, any thoughts about conquering the wind would be appreciated? I'd hate to think that I'll have to resign myself to spinning indoors (ugh! I've done that all Winter.) Thanks in advance!

In talking with the consierge, she indicated that Aruba is not a bike friendly place, as the rodes are too crowded. Also, there are no bike lanes & the people are not in tune to looking out for bikers. I suspected the crowding on the major streets as we had been there before, but I thought that there might be back roads. I guess not. The wind was also pretty stiff most of the time, so anything but east to west travel would be more difficult. I guess that I'll be jogging or spinning as well as tanning & loafing on the beach.
