Today’s ride began with a 6 mile climb! The entire ride was grueling and the ascents were endless.
Traffic was rush-hour heavy and my partner Brett struggled early on with the remnants of bronchitis.
But there was something really rewarding about doing this by bike!
The weather was gorgeous and the foliage was at its peak.
Lying here on my bed at Big Meadows Lodge I can’t imagine getting on that bike again tomorrow but I have a nice dinner and a full night’s sleep ahead…we’ll see!
