Chilling with the gang !
One of the best climb’s of the trip!! Legs were working well, scenery spectacular, and great riding weather!
Prepared myself for camping at top of Sherman’s Pass… ( no showers, no H20, pit toilets… You get the picture) ….. YES, darn, camping closed due to infestation of bugs that were ” making the trees sick”
We descended the most awesome 16 miles to Republic, WA.. I smiled with joy the entire way as I knew 25 cent showers awaited and we had electricity! Great chicken burger at the local diner! Camping at the Fairgrounds in Republic… Things just have a way of working out!!! long day but 18 miles less to ride tomorrow!
Wow, welcome to Washington….2 of my teammates have never been here!!!!
“Bat caves” Indian Manressa Grotto site!
( I did not climb up there )
Josh could pass as a ” street indigent”…… Hard to believe he’s bike nearly across the country.. I say, maybe you’re reading too many books!!!!!!
Colorful, but I’ll stick to my Purple Bike ( Eggplant)
Chilling on the porch of the Meandering Moose Motel… Waiting on the food!!!!
What else do we do on a day off?
Service projects, eat, get new tires at the bike shop, drink and help nurse our teammate ( who crashed yesterday and besides getting pretty banged up, needs a new wheel set)….
