John Day to Baker City

Not content with yesterday's jaunt, today was a pig with our first climb going from just over 3000 feet to 5250 feet over about 20 miles.  It took a very long time and was the followed by two steep climbs of about 1000 feet. To add insult to injury, the last 15 miles, which were more or less downhill, were into a headwind. Oh Joy!!!
The scenery was pretty good
and we got to see what Americans use for holidays

At the SAG stop, Alex showed me her favourite cycling food which consisted of a banana, topped with peanut butter, topped with a mix of nuts, raisins and Mand Ms. Delicious? You decide!
Todays Stats
Mileage - 81
Climbing - 4605 feet
Time in saddle - can't remember 'cos I'm outside in a nice garden enjoying the cool air.  Easyish two days coming up before a day off.

  1. The things some people will do to get out of cutting the grass and watching the England team!
    Enjoying the blogs - the scenery looks great. You sound as if you are coping well and are doing a great job. Keep up the great work.
    p.s. The bandwich looks fantastic!
