Day 17 From Where are we in WY to Laramie 102. 5 miles

Hardest Day in the Saddle yet!  Hardest day on the bike  for me ever!  Morning started out with a light rain, everyone got to use their rain gear,  we looks like space aliens.  Hit a storm that felt like it had hell in it,  the wind would blow you over.  Rode 25 + miles in rain and hell,  the rain did let up later but the wind picked up.  Rode for miles with Wind Farms on both sides of us,   I stopped counting at 102 windmills.   Rode through Mechine Bow!  Can you guess what wester on TV  also went to Mechine Bow.   We rode all day at 7200 to 7500 in elevation.  Everyone was glad to be of the bike.  Tomorrow will bring a new day and new weather we hope.  We now have ridden close to 1500 miles.


  1. Thank you so much for the update! I'm glad you all are safe. God Bless America and the Greenbrier Valley Bike Club!


  2. I would have stop counting after 20! I am impressed!!! Counting 102 wind mills really emphasizes the fact of when you are on a bike you have an incredible amount of time on your bottom! (would have said hands but bottom seems more fitting for this trip!) Did you get homesick today for a warm shower, bed, good book and couch? Hang in there you have 1500 miles behind you!!!!!!!!! It won’t be long and you will be half-way!
