Have a "Grate" Day

Our day starts early and we are out on the road with one of the first groups. We seem to be slow starters and it doesn't take long for the group to pull away from us, however, while we are still with the group we have to avoid several gratings that the lead riders are announcing.

Oh, My Burning Knees of Fire

After yesterday's navigation mishap, it's difficult to get Sharon on the bike again. She dreamt last night of riding in the sagĀ and just kicking back and taking photos. "Well, guess you got that sagging all day out of your system while you were sleeping then." This logic seems less effected than I hoped. I do convince her to at least start, but I "better not make her miss dinner at Timberline Lodge."

Halfway Through Hell

Today, I think, I have finally figured out what Sharon and I signed up for. It's super ultra boot camp for hardcore cyclists.
