Hello Grace tribe! We got caught up last night on a mixed call, some VOIP, Text and regular cell phone. When you get out as far as she is now communications have their challenges. She had another incredible day with a tailwind, she sounded pumped and full of energy. Grace is also getting to a point in the ride where she is using extra chamois butter. Cyclists… you know what I mean.
In her words:
“Ater Togwotee I was so excited that I made it to the top. I just simply assumed that I was just gonna descend the other side. I suited up with my rain jacket for the descent and dropped in for a good 5 to 8 minutes before I realized my turn was at the very top. Needless to say of course I had to climb backup to stay true to the course. That little section was called Wind River. It was real rutted out from ATB’s and still had a lot of snow drifts that turned muddy and slushy.
I’m at a camper cabin at lava lodge. Tomorrow has a very steep long climb of course. And there’s been a lot of bear activity, it’s very remote from here to Pinedale. So I’m gonna stay about 3/4 of the way at a bikers only inn. I spoke to the gentleman tonight and it’s basically just a shed with bed. Just like tonight I use my sleeping bag. Nice to not have to set up and take down my tent.”
