I seem to hit a wall after 4 days, heavy legs and no go 🙂 will have a day off or a short one tomorrow. Just climbed the haardest hill of the trip 4 miles of granny gear grinding, phew but the pay off was a 40mph drop back to sea level. Now I have to go back up again.
The 101 has a shoulder on it which is great for bikes but not so great for the caperpillars 😦 there are hundreds of these red and black hairy buggers and sadly I seem to be running them over by the bucket load. The other thing you notice when riding along is the smell of recently deceased creatures, sometimes it can be half a mile of gagging on the smell of rotting carcass.
I have lucky gloves 🙂 managed to drop them twice and have found them when I backtracked.
Off to do another 15 miles and find somewhere to put the tent up.
Take care everybody.
