Up, Down then Up Again!
Our ride started out again all up hill. Its nice to finish the day with a down hill and worth the morning climb. We had done 1000 feet in the first 3 miles. Nothing here is flat. You are ether going up or down. Lots of bike pushing. Barbara has taken to pushing from behind then it gets steep and rocky.
We have started to get into sections of mud. Unridable as well, we make the best out of a bad situation and just deal.
Our standard plan is to stay on the trail and around 5:00, get on the main road to our next town. No less hilly, but paved. When we got on the road last night we had 20k to go. Climbing for the first 12 and all down hill until the hotel.
Here ars some of the photos from yesterdays ride:
On the trail we a surrounded by beauty beyond belief! Dream like at times, we are not always able to take photos.
The riding is tough. At the end of the day we are both done. Last night we actually discussed if we should go eat. We did and it was great.
We are both looking forward to another day on the trail!
