|Dude Robot (Michael Riscica) and my sticker in Gillian's trailer. Let's start a wall of fame!!
|Bye bye flatlands!
We said our farewells to Gillian complete with a hug and made our way to the grocery store to stock up on snacks and Gatorade.
|I can't see a thing
And what do ya know... Only 17 miles to go, we make it 7 and Mike's tire is going flat again... But hey, more time to rock out and bake in the sun!
I gotta tell ya, Mike is getting better and quicker at this!
We rode out for the last 10 miles to our warm showers host, Savre, in Pueblo. But wait! An ice cream shop! We made the obligatory stop.
We showed up to Savre's and began helping prepare dinner. While Savre cooked, I changed my bike chain. I didn't bring my chain measuring tool to tell if it was totally worn out, but at over halfway I figured I would change it now since I have the spare (I am keeping the other chain for spare parts). I also want to be fresh for my Mount Evans climb.
Dinner was beer battered zucchini, mushrooms, shrimp and fish. It was so amazing. Also so nice to have fish over burgers for once. Savre and her family and so welcoming and relaxed. It is nice to put my feet up in the AC and watch a movie. Ahhhh...
Mike is passed out because he was given Benadryl for an achy chest. He's probably just nervous about leaving my side ;)
Not to worry I will see him in Denver on Friday for the Rockies game, then we will part ways for the rest of the trip and I'll see him in New York!
