My cycling day with the BAK started just before 7a.m. & ended at 4:30p.m. The temps topped 100 & the cross winds were brutal. We went through the Gypsum Hills and honestly I didn’t find them too challenging. Don’t get me wrong I’m not a fan of hills, but these were different. For every up hill struggle there was a neck breaking 30+ mile per hour down hill joy.
It wasn’t until afternoon that I started feeling down. Actually it started when I began fighting 30+ mile headwinds. My head starting feeling prickly and I began to get the chills. As soon as I made it to Attica I pulled into he SAG stop & told them about my chills. They noticed the goosebumps. I already knew it was time to call it, but they confirmed my thoughts. So I relinquished my bike & rode back in luxury.
Now it’s just time to rest & enjoy the band playing for the cyclists. Tomorrow is another day.
