The day's ride:
Well, no bike issues today and cutting north out of Tucson the first hour went by ridiculously fast. 18 miles in an hour. For hardcore riders this is nothing but they also ride on feather lite rigs. My bike is a bread truck weighing in at 25 pounds with no bags. You try hurling those gears across flat ground that fast.
Second hour, the same. Then the third side roads and gravel washboard roads. Dust, cough. Bumps jarring already aching tendons and muscles. Then the bigger bumps. My shoulder is already fried and some of these make me question if one of these jolts will make the shoulder tear? The bad roads eventually faded and it was back to the highway.
Today a new interstate, highway 8 and the first sign for San Diego!
Origianlly I was planning on being done for World Diabetes Day. With a heavy event schedule, multiple 60 mph headwind days, 3 days of rain totaling 30 plus inches of rain and a 5 hour drive to an event it was an insane schedule to adhere too. The trade offs for the outreach and with the weather being something I cannot control it is something that I need to be ok with. Any form of frustration is often erased when around corners and far off in the distance I am able to see and experience new and amazing sights.
One leg I forgot to hit "record":
