Day 21: AccomplishmentsOctober 9, 2016 in the United States
Woke up to a beautiful, but cold day. A mile and a half into my ride, I reached the summit! After the torturous climb the last 2 days, I had done it! That was probably the hardest (physical) thing I've ever had to do.
The 14 mostly downhill miles into Old Station was easy breezy. There I treated myself to a big breakfast. I deserved it.
After breakfast I had another glorious moment. I had to go up another 1000 ft. This time i did it without stopping. I didn't even use the last gear. I said a little prayer with Mary Jane, I put on some explosions in the sky, then I put my head down and powered through it. It was an amazing feeling to finally have the strength. I have never been more proud of myself!
I biked 48 miles and felt great! tomorrow I get to go down hill, then it looks like it's going to be a much easier ride for a couple if days.Read more
