Biking the TransAm 2016 Blog
2 Wheels, 6 Months, 1 Adventure
It was nice to sleep in. Marc went to take care of his brother and Cece made breakfast.. So nice to sit at a kitchen table sharing life…
It was time to drive the two hours back to Ennis. I napped again to get the most out of the rest full visit… So special. So short…..
THANKS! Marc and Cece for going way out of your way to visit…
Back on the bike my legs felt great.. So the 2,000 ft climb up to a un named pass was manageable.. I stopped several times to take in the view….. And some oxygen…. Two hours to climb 8 miles… 15 minutes to ride to Virginia City 6 miles down….
Since it was Memorial Day weekend the town was full of Gold Rush Tourists… Lots of history and lots of people. .. Instead of the typical mining they ground up the river bed and separated the gold and left miles of piles of rock……
Nevada City, Alder, Sheridan and on to Twin Bridges were the town was all closed up. I stayed at the City Biker Camp….. So Nice
