The reason I was at the bike club meeting I mentioned in a recent newsletter was to see a presentation by Kyle and Robin who recently survived a fun bike tour.
Kyle’s bike with rider weighed in at about 300 pounds and the route was planned for its scenery – mostly mountains and deserts. Because there is nothing more enjoyable than climbing a mountain pass in 100 degree heat - short on drinking water.
The stress of the riding compared only to the equally poor tent sites and food.
They are planning this year’s trip to be a little more challenging.
