Cross Country Recumbent
Wednesday August 6, 2003. Riverside WY to Walden CO
The day started off really good. Cool weather, riding into the
rising sun, the speeds were high, and my favorite song was on the
player. This lasted about five minutes. Notice the average
speed above. The wind kicked up and the route started to undulate
like a flag in the wind. It really wasn't bad, but it did squash
my fantasy of making it to Kremling today.
I did get to see some pretty good sites today, but I think the best one
is this shot of the road looking back the way I came. You can
really see a long way at 8000'.
Big news for the day is the new state, welcome to Colorado!
One of these days I'll have to get a picture with me in it. It
has been pointed out to me that my bike is like the Gnome in Amelie,
just travleing all around by itself. I'm actually still at home,
just shipping my bike place to place :).
I entered Wyoming in Yellowstone, and there wasn't any sign, so to make
up for the lack I turned around and took this:
Walden is a nice place, and there isn't anything betwen here and
Kremling (60 miles), so it is probably good that I stopped here.
