I will add my 2 cents to Joe's comments. The wind was BRUTAL, and in your face the whole way. On the last 10 miles into town, I had to pedal hard (downhill) to keep from rolling to a stop. There was a lot of climbing. One of the guys in the gym where I am sleeping commented that 1st day was 30 miles of climbing, 2nd day is 40 and the 3rd day is 50! The wind, however, was far worse than the hills.
The folder is working pretty well. I had 2 stops for mechinical issues dealing with my shifter. The 8 speed was only accepting7 gears. I had to opt between the granny and the high gear. Due to the hills and the wind, I opted for the granny. The last aid station had a mechanic who totally removed the shift cable from the bike and replaced it...it was marginally better, but I have full use of all my gears, although to shift into the highest, I have to shift down 2 gears and then push it into the highest gear--that works about 60% of the time.
