We’re Not in Kansas Anymore

Day 33 – Rush Center to Dighton, KS – 63 miles (very windy)
Day 34 – Dighton, KS to Sheridan Lake, CO – 100 miles

Wind is 100 times worst then hills, with hills at least you can see the finish and the downhill payoff.  With wind you just suffer through as much as you can until all your energy is sapped.  Luckily of our 7 riding days in Kansas we had only one real bad wind day and the rest were mostly in our favor; thank you Kansas and mother nature.

Needless to say we are happy to be out of Kansas and into Colorado, but unfortunately the whole east side of Colorado pretty much looks just like Kansas until we get past Pueblo; just a couple more days.

When your battling 30 mph diagonal headwinds, this is how you ride; Team Work
Met Peter from Oxford, Great Britain; he only biked 20 miles ever before starting this

Met Jack from Holland riding from Orlando to Seattle; tough as nails
Notice the flat background, reminds me of Dumb and Dumber quote about John Denver and the Rockies
This is the ending still image if Mark and I ever made a movie of getting out of Kansas

  1. One more comment, I wish you were going thru Wolf Creek Pass north of Pagosa Springs, one of the most majestic views in the SW. Still, White River area is great as well. Onward thru the fog bro!
