Tour 2007 – day 9

When I got out of the tent this morning it was absolutely clear and already warming up. Now the one thing I was particularly fearing this morning was to find my rear tire flat again. Alas these fears were realized and again the rim was resting right on the ground. Sigh. I put it off till I was done with breakfast packing and so on. Then I pulled the wheel found the small hole and…

Tour 2007 – day 7

This was my one day of not cycling of the tour but due to the spread out nature of the various services I did end up riding a bit. I didn’t get up too much later then usual, but it probably was the best nights sleep yet – it was very quiet here away from the main road unlike the other campsites. I went through the usual morning routine then unloaded the bicycle but for…

My fellow touron was still in his tent which must have…

Tour 2007 – day 2

After a fairly fitful nights sleep, I finally got out of bed around 8:30. I showered, made coffee, and oatmeal and turning on the TV for some weather got sucked into a fantastic US Open woman’s match that ended in an upset. So again left a bit late but I wasn’t really pressed for time today. Even though I never caught the weather it turned put to be sunny and warm. I road into Mount…

Tour 2007 – day 1

It seems these days when I’m not working I can’t sleep in. While I could have used the extra sleep today, it was for the best as I had so much preparation yet do. But not to belabor the mundane I spent the morning cleaning and checking over the bicycle, then loaded it up, did some last minute shopping and so on. With all this I didn’t head out till 12:30. With at least 70…
