It’s our 34th wedding anniversary and we celebrate with a bike ride up to about 4000 feet. Before we talk about Day 2, we have this just in–exclusive, breaking news. Here is a picture you will only see here, the view inside Tent 6.
Remember, what happens in the tent, stays in the tent!
Now, onto the ride. From the Garmon Guy:
Start city: Alpine, CA
End city: Live Oak Springs, CA
Total miles to date: 73
Ride time: 2 hours 59 minutes
Avg. speed: 10.8
Feet climbed: 3640
Fatigue factor: 5 (out of 10)
Speaking of highways, we ride on Interstate 8 today.
Why? There are no other roads to ride on. The traffic is light and the shoulder is huge. Kind of reminds us of riding on the Pacific Coast Highway.
As we get closer to the end, the wind starts to get more fierce. First it’s a helpful tailwind, it changes to a healthy crosswind as we approach the finish. The bike is blown sideways, and it becomes hard to stay on the white line. Everyone gets in safely, though.
Hey Chef Anne, is tonight Greek night?
