Day 23: Not a hill in sight.

Finally! Some actually, real flat road! Long time coming! I cant tell you how excited I was to look off into the distance and not see any rollers or big climbs. Nothing but flat all the way. Unfortunately we had a temperature of above 100 degrees and headwind pretty much the entire ride. Good thing today was only 75 miles.

Today was just another day in the life of the Big Ride Across America. Nothing to exciting to mention. Saw some road kill, ate some food and rode a bike. Although one of the older riders, probably one of the coolest as well, dewayne had some problems with his bike all day. His shifter cable snapped meaning that he could only use two different gears on his bike. So he was either pedaling really fast or really slow. Props to the guy for making it to town and not giving up. He his one bad ass endurance rider if you ask me.

Every day that goes by just means that im that much closer to home and civilization. I cant wait to make it to that rest day and eat some real food, and talk with some people that have the right idea. Thinking CRC for some caffeine and then off to Seward Cafe for some delicious greasy hippy food.

Thats all for now everybody. Hopefully tomorrow with be a little cooler than today. Nothings worse than having to ride in heat...id probably take the hills over it.

Until then,
-Ride Hard
