Today we covered 51 miles, 3600 ft of climbing and the last 15 miles in the rain. Got to love good quality rain gear-makes all the difference. I am so comfortable riding with Robin, we are both sticklers for being safe on the bike, we signal and communicate all the time while riding. I trust her completely. It was especially important today in the rain. Not unexpected this early in the journey, I had two incidents, today, where a rider rode too close to me and made me feel very uncomfortable. I provided coaching and feedback on the safety issue in what I hope came across as calm and thoughtful, but who knows. One took the feedback well, the other didn’t. I’ve made a mental note to ride very defensively around these riders.
I didn’t get may pictures, today, obviously, because of the rain. Suppose to be clearer tomorrow, and of course, more climbing!
