Tuesday around 3:00pm head winds, heavy rain and lightening caused us to abandon the day. Yes day, I put in 83 miles mostly uphill to 6,000 feet and today, meant to a rest day I covered just 54 miles to Alpine Texas and so once again on schedule. Some rest day.
This part of Texas well off the interstates and up in the mountains is truly beautiful and historic. Much had been preserved especially at Fort Davis.
Our third Across America Rider, Skylohr Taylor is an excellent cyclist and has found our schedule insufficient of a challenge (blimey 100 miles a day for 30 days - insufficient!) and so has elected to go on ahead. We wish him all the best.
