Despite difficulties from the border authorities, we received the flag with great joy and shouted Mansei. 

On the following day a group of 12 cyclists left from Managua and rode about 90 Km to the city of Leon. Three kilometers before reaching the destination, a group of about 340 people waited and followed the cyclists and marched with them to the Victory Sports field.
