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.
