A short and a bit flatter ride coming up today. Had a very light breakfast at camp and then headed out. A while into the ride, Steve on his F40 caught up with me and we rode along together for a ways. The F40 is about velomobile speed on the flats, a bit slower on the downhills and quicker on the uphills even when he's carrying his camping gear. He manages to fit it all inside the body sock in panniers--total weight of his camping gear about 8 lbs.
First stop was in Orofino at about 80 km into the ride. Found a perfect stop for food. It was a buffet-- what else could a cyclist ask for!! Had two plates full of food in about half an hour. Carried on riding shortly after the food, next stop Kooskia to pick up food for breakfast the following day. Was feeling pretty good riding along the river and then stopped to take a picture of a place that sells flower and plants.
