Day 17-Shoshoni

Monday, June 29, 2009

Today we rode from Dubois to Shoshoni, Wyoming which was a 100 mile ride. The day began quickly with a strong tail wind and an awesome descent that had us averaging 22 MPH for the first 60 miles compared to 15-18 MPH usual pace. I unfortanetly forgot to get my Garmin bike computer out of my backpack before so I had to wait until I arrived at the second crew stop (20 miles in where my computer was to start recording) so my total daily milage was 21 miles short.

However the day took a turn for the worse around mile 60, plagued by 3 flats in a less than a few miles my paceline quickly lost an hour of the day making repairs on the side of the road. We finished the ride by 12:30 and had lunch upon arriving in Shoshoni, a small town of a little more than 600 that used to be a hot spot for uranium mining.

The afternoon was filled with napping and a trip to the local malt shop, a great dinner was sponsored by the cooks at the Shoshoni senior center and a trip to Walmart in Riverton capped off the night.

Here are some photos from a mountain top sunset after the cattle woman dinner:
