105 miles, 1864 feet climbed
Another day with the threat of rain. It did come for me and a few others in the last mile, only because we stopped in downtown Marysville at Whit’s Frozen Custard. Only two SAGs today despite the length. The first was at 42 miles, perhaps to allow Gregg, who served as staff for the first part of our tour, to provide donuts and cookies memorializing our route closer to where he lives. I rode those 42 miles pretty much straight through. And the route was on quiet country roads, a treat.
My pocket camera stayed in my luggage again. What follows is from my cell phone.
So far we’ve been pretty lucky with the weather, the one exception being an abundance of head- and crosswinds. As I write this, CNN is warning of dangerous high temperatures to the west of us but not on our route for the next few days, the shortest of which is 89 miles. Another weather break for us.
