Saturday was the Sorba Save the Trails Challenge. We got suckered into volunteering. We were asked to show up at 7:30 am. Uhh, you didn't tell me that when I signed up to volunteer!! We almost camped out the night before at the location in Dupont. But, when I got home from work, there was a good chance of rain and thunderstorms. We opted to stay home, because one of my least favorite things is a wet tent and a damp sleeping bag. Jubal camped out in his room. Here are a couple of pictures of our rest stop.
Sunday brought cooler weather. I wanted to ride, but was not sure where. I needed to take it easy, so I opted to ride on the road. Then I had to decide distance. It was quite windy, but I opted to ride out Bear Creek Rd, to Marshall and back up river road. I fought head winds and gust all the way out. The reward was a strong tailwind most of the way home. I was able to hit 25 mph on some stretches of flat road. 55 miles, 3 h 11 m, 4500 ft of climbing.
Ahhh, back to work.
Have a great day.
