Secluded or not, the church I’m staying at KNOWS how to cater to its visitors: there is coffee!!! Once I’ve downed a couple of cups, I’m ready to leave a mark for posterity: a huge written sign on the ceiling indicating my website’s address. And then I’m ready to hit the road.
The route is more or less flat, or downhill even, but today’s “challenge of the day” is headwind. I move real slow and by the end of the day, the clouds catch up with me and I get rained at.
Luckily, once in Rawlins, I run into a lovely couple who instantly invite me over to spend the night at theirs. Random, beautiful connection. I get to shower, do a laundry and I finally stop smelling. A perfect end to any cyclist’s day.
