Well! Umm…umm. Nothing much happened today. We got up, ate granola and fruit in our room for breakfast and began cycling in 85°C heat and ‘sauna like’ humidity. Our first 10 miles were along a busy highway with a very narrow hard shoulder and a population of drivers who seemed to be unable courteously to give us a wide berth when speeding by.
The journey back down to the northern coast of Lake Michigan was only 45 miles, dropping to approximately 580ft above sea level. It’s crazy to think that we were once in New Mexico writing Blogs explaining how we were elevating to dizzy heights in excess of 8,000ft or completing 3000ft climbs in one day, and now we’re impressed with a being 580ft above sea level …we guess we’re coming home!
Feeling hot but not tired, we arrived at our motel at 3:20pm to find the owner was not in. He left a note saying he’d be back at 4:30pm, so we took the opportunity to wander up Main Street to find somewhere to eat, which we did, and you guessed right …chips, crisps, burgers and BLT’s.
Thought for the Day: “It’s strange how one can eat fresh grilled fish with salad and baked potatoes as we did last night, and then the next day just 45 miles away on a different body of water, the only choices for food are fried food and sandwiches”.
