You may ask, “How is this possible Don?” Well, I will tell you. Drop about 5,500 feet in elevation over 83 miles. I think I hit a top speed of 45 mph today. I didn’t take any pictures because I was going too fast. But, I did play around with the GoPro and selfie stick and have a video for Facebook. I was not going 45 mph at that time, so don’t worry Audrey & Mom.
It was sooooo nice to have a day with a long downhill, especially after the Rockies. Unfortunately, I lost my American flag somewhere on the downhill. I look up in my rear view and it was gone? Sorry America. I did not dispose of the flag properly, my bad on that one. I was sure I would lose it in Wyoming but it hung in there. I am going to try to pick up a new flag in Pueblo tomorrow.
Tomorrow Pueblo! The halfway point of the TransAm. Today I have surpassed 2,000 miles on a bicycle. I am having a hard time believing it as well. I have met so many interesting people and seen so many interesting things. I have another half a trip to met and see more. Everyday there is something new and different. I am excited and grateful for this opportunity.
I am staying in a city park in Florence, CO
