Lazy Day in Missoula

Picking things up from last night, we stumbled home from supper after several pints of the local IPA and were in bed by about 9:30 PM. It was so nice to sleep in a real bed. I picked up my book and read 3 pages before I was out cold.

This morning I slept until 8:30 Am so it was 11 hours of down time. Everyone was feeling like we really needed the rest. I had been planning to go for a run to day but by 8:30 it was already too hot and I settled for huge omelet and gallons of coffee in the local shop.

Tom and I walked over to the local bike shop were we were met by Patrick who had rented a car. The three of us drove over to REI where I bought a back up bike computer, a new bike jersey which looks like a cross between a skeleton and a machine, and small tube of sun screen which I can carry on my bike. Later we had lunch on a patio and wandered around in downtown Missoula.

Supper and meeting is in the university cafeteria. In the mean time I better get my bike cleaned and the chain oil. Another week starts and I better be ready.

It is good to be lazy but it is time to go do my chores.

Sounds like a good day. Don't forget to post the map of this week's route for us to follow.

Way to go! It sounds like you have found a good pace and you've have gotten fast too. One week down and eight to go.

I finished my week ride of the Rockies. It was fantastic...but the hardest week I've ever done. I'll send some pics.

Off to Phoenix tomorrow.

Keep the rubber on the road.

Terry, a good end to the first week. Every day has its challenges, and this is a universal truth. Thanks for the pics, have a good ride next week and keep up the good work.
