Day 28: West Wendover, NV to Ely, NV

Today’s ride was long – about 120 miles – which would have been challenge enough, but on top of it we had headwinds that averaged 20 mph with gusts exceeding 30 mph. That’s hard for biking.

On the positive side, we got to set our watches back an hour. We’re now in the Pacific Time Zone, which makes it feel like we’re all that much closer to Pebble Beach. When we were riding in to Ely, which is mostly a casino town, we could see a large forest fire in the mountains to our left.

Tomorrow’s forecast looks like more of the same, hot and windy. Today was pretty uneventful, but that’s OK – yesterday was such a packed set of experiences that it felt like several days’ worth.
