Rode another 113 KM.  1,154 climb.   Weather was cool today and rained several times.   I rode fast and enjoyed it.   I got caught in a race.   The Fireweed race is from Anchorage to Valdez.   We had a lot of support vehicles on our route.    It was funny telling officials we didn’t belong to the race and that we were riding to Mexico.   They were surprised.    I chased the lead for awhile.   Here I am on a touring bike with a load of gear going 25 Mph sprinting.    It was all in good jest as he asked if I wanted to sprint to the city sign.

we are at the third camp site.   It is nice outside but a bit buggy.    I will retire to my tent shortly.  Tomorrow is only 93 KM and not much climbing.   I am planning on doing some hiking.

Enjoy the picture.
