Tuesday - We had a good ride today, but it was probably one of the most challenging rides of the tour. We went through the mountains, so it was one big climb after another. I really enjoyed the first half of the ride because I had gotten a little bored with the flatness of Michigan and Ontario and the scenery was spectacular. The climbs were challenging but enjoyable and flying down the other side was a blast (In the words of my brother-in-law: "Wheeeeeeee"). However, after a while it was really tiring and the wind shifted against us, so we couldn't even go fast downhill. At that point I just wanted to get into camp. Thankfully, there's a "rehydration station" just outside our camp, so I'm feeling a lot better now.
