Where I stayed
If you were in the office today or snuggled in the library reading/writing an essay, let me assure you - you were in the best place. I've rarely had a less enjoyable day on the bike.
Today was a defining day in 2 senses. Firstly, the trek guides reckoned today was the hardest day on the trip. (It was certainly on a par with the longest day of 142 miles to Taos a few days ago). Secondly, I learnt what EFI stands for. I'd heard the guides mention it a couple of times but let it pass. It's their informal term for the people who are left on this trip - type "A", high achieving personalities who would rather have their eyes gouged out than go in the support van as they want to cover "ever f**king inch" of road on the ride across America.
It's incredible how the weather can turn so dramatically from fair to foul
David shielded me from the wind whenever possible - true love on a bicycle! I can't believe I'm the only woman left who has covered "EFI" of the ride so far. The trouble is we have to do the same tomorrow and I'm just not sure I can.
