Day 26: Delta, UT to Ely, NV

This was the worst day ever, in all of my five years of biking on the Road to Discovery. This was definitely the most challenging day I have ever had.

We rolled out of the parking lot at 3 a.m.  It was a bit windy, but coming off the best day ever, I was optimistic this would be another wonderful day.  The sunrise was spectacular, but as the sun came up, things started to deteriorate.

Day 19: McCook, NE to Yuma, CO

Today was a more challenging ride – the crosswind was back, and it was blowing at 18 mph with gusts of 28 mph. It looks like we’ll have more of that tomorrow and it will be hotter, but the winds should ease off a bit. That will be nice.

I left very early this morning and the sunrise was spectacular. The sunrise is always one of my favorite parts of the day.  The prairies and wheat fields were marvelous and looked beautiful blowing in the wind.  As we crossed into Colorado, we probably could see 50 to100 miles in all directions. The train off in the distance, probably a mile long, looked like a toy in the landscape under that big blue sky. We’ll see the Rockies tomorrow as we head toward Denver.
