1st 75 miles done!

Don't ever let someone tell you that 75 miles on a bike isn't a long way.  Oh my gosh!

Yesterday went ok.  The winds were around 15 and directly in our face for most of the day - so that took a lot out of you.  The bike ride goes east to west - so you have a really good chance of heading into the wind!  At points it felt like you were standing still.

Everyone you meet is very nice and offers encouragement. 

This shot is at the starting line yesterday morning.  Some of my team mates.

It looks like we might have rain today - yikes.  Hot, humid & thunderstorms.

I will see - just how my legs and bottom feel today!



  1. Congrats on 75 and good luck today. Hopefully you will have some quiet before the storm and you will finish before thunderstorms start.

  2. Awesome job on your 75 mile bike ride! There is no way in hell that I could do that now:) I could maybe do 20 miles and still live...maybe. Nice work!
