We had a great breakfast this morning, sausage, eggs, pancakes, etc. Today we rode only 36 miles to the next town of Helena, Montana. It’s the shortest ride of the whole trip, it should be a piece of cake! Out on the road at 8:00 AM, 30 mph wind in our faces so strong we had to pedal to go down hill. As a car passed me I heard a crash and pieces of plastic flew around my wheels. A deer was hit by a car right behind me, it was a close call for me. We pedaled on all morning trying to go at least 10 mph. It was too windy to talk, not much fun today. It is an adventure, we never know what a day brings forth.
We are glad to reach our destination and rest. Yesterday we rode 96 miles and it was an easier ride for me than the 36 miles today. I trust that we are being conditioned for the mountains that we will be tackling in the next week or two. Sometimes our day is hard but with the Lord’s help we make it to our destination for the day.
