I am feeling good and getting stronger everyday. I am able to handle the wind but its just annoying and monotonous all day long. I was prepared to deal with adversity on this trip and my training from Coach John Hughes has been spot on. As Bill Belichick says "it is what it is" and I must deal with it. That is what makes this ride "epic". As the ride leader told us "anyone can ride cross country with tail winds and sunshine"
All the riders are still in good spirits and everyone finished today. We all had dinner tonite at Applebees in Great Bend, KS. Tomorrow is another day and we head to Abilene, KS. Conditions should not be as bad as the winds will be in the same direction but only up to 15 MPH.
Here are pictures from today:
