Day 32: 102 miles - This morning we got e relaxed start and cruised the 8 miles into Pueblo to a bike shop to top off tires. From there it was due east into the headwind and into the landscape that Andy refers to as West Kansas. We had big plans of riding about 125 to Eads, but soon realized that with a sub 15 mph average, that would make for a very long day. We stopped about 58 miles in for some food and some introspective pep-talking and then carried on. After we had ridden a bit after lunch, I thought that we might be able to suffer our way to Eads. Andy agreed to give it a shot so we headed out for the last 56 miles. After 33 of those miles, we came to Haswell and decided to call it a day.
I'm not going to try to make any predictions on tomorrow after biting off a little too much today. We'll just have to see what the wind does.
