8/23

8/23

It is going to be a long few days in the desert! Today was 77 miles but the heat made it seem so much longer. I rode with my trip leader all day and we made quick stops in various places which broke up the mileage nicely.

We saw THE LONDON BRIDGE! The one from the children’s song! It is in Arizona after a costly mistake at an auction when a man thought he was purchasing the famous tower bridge. Now the London bridge is not falling down but is rather crossing lake havasu!

Our camp ground is going to be so so hot tonight. The low: 89 degrees and wildly humid! We are able to swim in the Colorado which makes the heat bearable.

We passed an individual on the road today who took us out to dinner. He was going to do bike and build a few years back but was unable to. It was very nice to get to know him and discuss our accomplishments!

It’s such a tease seeing California just across the river! I cannot wait to be there!
