Seems easy enough right? NOT!! More insane hills. I was extremely frightened and actually scarred at one point early in the day. An extreme downgrade with a stop sign at the bottom. My brakes were smoking and not slowing down! I was not sure how it was going to end. I ended up locking up the brakes and skidded to a stop. My heart was in my throat. Wow! Little did I know later in the day there would be a 17% downgrade and a 17% incline! WTF!! But I was able to accomplish this with the mighty EX (and pedal power).
A great day overall. Grueling to say the least. Got all miles so I am still #1. Unreal. Here’s a sign in hotel.
Here’s the other class one bikes.
Stopped for gas in the rain and noticed my luggage rack was split!
So I zip tied it all together for the next leg. Later in the day the zip ties broke and I had to once again limp it along.
Here’s what my day looks like.
Way to go Team Effort.
The trailer is working out awesome.
Tomorrow will be about 260 miles to Illinois. I’ll be meeting family, friends, and wifey. We are ready!
I want to thank my sponsors again! Without them this is not possible!
