I slept for 11 hours last night! Then I had a shower, two bowls of cereal with fresh peaches on top, three cups of coffee, two large glasses of water and two slices of cold pizza. My ride today was only 28 miles- (total miles so far 254) I’m “pitching up” to set myself up for a tougher two pass 60 mile ride tomorrow with 8,000′ of elevation gain. I am staying at a Warm showers house tonight- great people (Megan, Ben & Kyle) and we had salmon burgers, salad from the garden, chips and garden fresh salsa and many Deschutes brewery beers! I love this country!
