I’m sure I will miss the open road but for the time being I’m overly excited to reach golden saddle cyclery tomorrow. It will be weird to be done after doing almost nothing except riding a bicycle for three weeks. Today was the hottest day I’ve ever ridden through by a long shot. It was dangerously hot. If a few things went wrong no question about it I could have easily died out there in the desert today. Even though all went well today I experienced some dizziness and maybe a few slight hallucinations. I was scared a few times but ultimately made it through. I took a break late this afternoon and tried to ride again at night. It didn’t work. My legs were done. There was nothing left, the heat took all the energy I had left. I’ll get up early tomorrow and ride the remaining 138 miles.
