Sunny and 84 degrees, that's more like it! This is the kind of day on which I like to ride. Except for the wind. I told myself I wasn't going to complain about the wind today, but come on! 25-35 mph, very gusty, up to 40mph. It's coming straight out of the south making the ride south slow, east or west hard to stay upright, and straight north just plain fun. It's making the flags look like this:
BAK. But the scheduled "full" day is only 36 miles. I've been through Colby, KS, and it seems nice, but I don't know if I need to get there by lunch and have the rest of the day for "sightseeing". So, I may ride the 18 miles from Goodland to the Colorado border for the "official" start there on Friday night, and perhaps ride there again Saturday morning and do it all again. Either way, I'll be able to say "we're touring".
