The final day in our two day test bike tour! We made oatmeal and coffee for breakfast, as usual. Here’s what Jamie looks like when we eat breakfast. Also, I am really starting to think I want to bring my french press coffee pot along on the international part of the trip - I’m not sure I could live without coffee in the morning!
The ride for today was pretty short - approx 20 miles, but with an elevation gain of 1900 ft. Our biggest climb to date! The first 10 miles were fairly easy with rolling hills & pleasant weather. We stopped for a snack at mile 10 because I was already starving. After that we began to climb slowly and steadily (as low as 4 miles/hr) for the next eight miles. It was very tiring, especially for me, but I never even had to dip into my granny gear which is very exciting! It started to get hot, and because we were going so slowly flies started buzzing around our faces. I started to get crabby at the very end of the ride. In this picture I am saying “You better not be taking a picture of me. Wait, are you taking a video?! If you are I am going to kill you. Stop it!!”
