Hit the Road, Jack...

One more hour, then it's off to the airport for flights to Minneapolis and Kalispell, then a short ride to Whitefish, courtesy of (well, I think I'll actually have to pay) Flathead Glacier Transportation. I hit the road 49 times since February 7 and put in an additional 20 days on the trainer in the basement. As previously noted, the 2,280 miles of riding and 112,500 feet of climbing I had attained last Saturday will indeed have to be enough. The pump finally arrived on Wednesday, but I was officially tapering by then. I did not make the 125,000 ft. goal for climbing, but that's OK. My real goal is to enjoy 7 days on the road in Montana.

No computers on the trip, so no updates to the blog until at least July 27. Once I get settled back into the not-out-on-a-tour routine, I'll post details of the ride, one day at a time.

And now, I'll hit the road...
                                                ...but, I'll be back.
