Cycling to John in WalkerOctober 12 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C
This morning, we decided it was too cold and windy to cook breakfast at our campspot. So we cycled to Markleeville and had yummy breakfast burritos and lattes instead.
Our route then took us along the last stretch of highway 89 - probably also the most beautiful one: Monitor Pass. It was actually quite tough with an average of 8% climb over about 14km. But we really enjoyed the views. At the summit, we could see into deserty Nevada - and again, it looks like a different world. The diversity is what we like best about cycling in the US: You climb a pass and behind, there's something new.
The rest of the day was an easy, very fast downhill until we reached highway 395 which then led to Walker, where we stay with our host John.Read more
