Last night team 3 finished the crossing of the Rockies with a climb of Cuchara Pass at 9936ft. Supposed to have spectacular views but we did it in the dark! We are now in Kansas eating some all American pancakes with hot syrup…. Yummy. Overnight ride was good and cool enough thatwe actually needed to wear a jacket. Lots of wildlife out and about tokeep us alert. I was confident until i rode past Black Bear Lane. I pedalled hharder for a while then!
So, next on again this afternoon for a flat one across the plains of Kansas. It looks likeit’s going to be hot and windy. Usual stuff before then washing kit, sleeping and eating. Tough life!
