With more winter weather threatening we continued to seek out indoor accommodation. Perhaps we’re getting weak or just losing our nerve. Or perhaps sleeping in a real bed is just that much better. Either way our wallet tells us that this new habit of ours can’t go on forever.
We originally made plans to stay with a Warm Showers host just south of Bend, which would have pleased our wallet, but another day of fierce tailwinds goaded us to ride further. We rocketed into Bend with nary a drop of sweat produced. It helped that the ride trended downhill, and it helped that it was probably 40 degrees at noon, but the day’s MVP was the wind. So here’s a toast to you wind. May you continue to push us, to inspire us to greater distances.
We landed at a motel in south Bend, beating the rain clouds that never lived up to their potential. Let’s hope the rain that’s supposed to come tomorrow also ditches class.
