Another phenomenal day on the bike! Our day began in Cottonwood, AZ, and we rode to Sedona, AZ, a beautiful little town set among some awesome rock formations. That was our first SAG stop and we had a snack at a small deck that overlooked an incredible vista. We then traveled up Oak Tree Canyon (called the “smaller cousin of the Grand Canyon” because of its scenic beauty), and eventually climbed the north end of the canyon’s hairpin curves. Adding to the challenge was road construction which had some lanes closed. And, in some areas the road was so narrow that there was literally no shoulder to ride on – so on several occasions vehicles stacked up behind us. Fortunately everyone kept their patience in check and we all arrived safely at our hotel.
Tomorrow is a rest day, so in addition to laundry, bike cleaning/lubricating/maintenance, catching up with emails, FB postings, and quite frankly, RESTING, at 4pm MST (6pm eastern), I’ll be doing a Facebook live stream on the rig I’m riding across the fruited plains. Visit “Cycling at a Higher Level” on FB to view the event.
Have a great night everyone!
