Somewhat more relaxed than I was the evening before I was ready for another day of cycling. I pumped up my tire again in the morning as it was looking a little soft and Jace and I were ready to go.
Today was going to be a short day. I had been up to this as my ‘well deserved rest day’. After all my knees and thighs were burning. It didn’t quite turn out like that.
Today’s ride was one of my favourite of the whole trip. It was also probably the most challenging ride of the tour.
It was long and I was cycling solo again, so it was a tad lonely however it pushed me to a new level that I hadn’t yet experienced. There was an unknown reward at the end which made you realise it was all worth it.
OK, so today is my last day with Oz and Paul. They are heading off to Portland tomorrow so I am going to have to make the most of their time. And it’s not as if I’ll catch-up with them either as they will head East as I go South the following day.
