You doubled my elevation today if I rode with you today I'd still be out there in the mountains
Tks Greg. That Stage was a major hurt. In addition to all Mother Nature threw out there, at mile 150, on top of PM for 2nd time, realized only 19% left on my Garmin battery, w 50 miles 2 go. That was 3 P.M. Figured out (wasn't easy!) needed to make it back to the coast, thru 4th of July traffic, in blazing July heat, on thrashed legs, via Cole Grade (of course) by 6 P.M. Don't think I've ever gone that fast. Finished at 5:55 w 1% left. Dug way deep. Surely a price to pay awaits. Still look forward to logging some miles w u Brother!
Wow, incredible Jim...... Recover well and keep it going, no words.....
Doing the math from your start time and coming up with 15 hours on the bike, with the last 50 miles done in 3 hours? That is a real self inflicted beat down, Jim.
I hope you have some energy left to celebrate the 4th!
Unable to comprehend... Amazing physical effort.
Shadow Tour Stage 1...WAY more exciting & BRUTAL than TdF short ITT!!! BRAVO BRAVO JK!!!
Congratulations on the first leg of your tour. I like the photos, especially the observatory.
Freedom on a bike is still this endless grueling work. Amazing.
