Left the kids at Camp Milagros this morning and headed out on my longest training ride of the year, a 73-miler. I'm sitting in Evergreen Village right now, an East San Jose oasis you'd never guess was here if you didn't drive through it. Today's ride has some similarities to many of my BikeTheCoast13 daily rides and I'm reminded that as exited as I am, most days will still be a grind. 73 miles doesn't happen without a lot of work.
Second half of today's ride is gonna be toasty.
Last refuel at Bailey Road fruit stand after coming down Metcalf (glad I wasn't going up). 20 miles left.
On August 14, 2013, I'm flying to Vancouver, British Columbia and beginning a 29-day, 1,880-mile bike ride from Canada to Mexico.
