Two great training days in... only 8 days until we leave.

On Sunday we rode 80 miles with Steve Fulling, a great friend up in South Jordan. We took a beautiful trip around Utah Lake. I had no idea there was so much fertile farm land out there. We passed by peaches, cherries, apples, pumpkins, squash, raspberries etc. Loved the ride! We would have gone farther if we had more time, but we needed to get back home before dark. Steve did get a flat at mile 72, but since we had the great sag driver, Jenny, we were back on the rode in under 5 minutes.
Tuesday we rode with David Dangerfield to Gunlock Reservoir. It was a perfect morning with nice cool temperature and amazing scenery. The best thing about this ride is all of the hills. Now that might sound funny, but hills are perfect for training. 50 miles was all we could squeeze in before work, but they were 50 fast and furious miles. This was the last of our big days before we leave since we have so much to do ...
Last night, I was a guest on "Up Close with Chris Tinney". An amazing radio host who spent 5 years on the road with his wife helping homeless and started a non-profit called Spread Peace. He has some interesting stories and totally gets the spirit of service to others. I really enjoyed talking to him. I will add the link to the blog today.
