Today we wanted to get in by 5pm and we needed to step up our game to cut an hour of time off our trip. Yesterday we got in at 5pm but we rode 14 miles less distance with the same headwind conditions. We did it by cutting 30 minutes off our ride time by pushing harder and saving 30 minutes off our lunch and Sag stops.
Another thing we were worried about was the possibility of rain. The night before they were calling for a 50% chance of rain but in the morning they were saying only 15% chance. It was a cloudy day but no rain. It’s hard to believe we have biked for 23 days and have not been rained on.
