Man from Ann Arbor loses his sanity

2009-05-10

Scores from the What was I thinking bike across the country tour.
79 Miles from LA to Riverside, CA. 88 degrees.

Sanity 0
Biker Dummy -10

I left the Pacific with the slow riders. A horse comes by and I swing out and catch his wheel. Why? No possible explanation. Soon we catch the lead pack. 20+ MPH. About 50 miles in riders start dropping off. What does BD do? Cruise in and save something for the next 48 days. No. I blast away and finish with three others in the lead pack. Absolute insanity.
I'm a dead man. Tomorrow 84 miles into the desert. 103 temp predicted.










Taken just before I lose my mind.

From the reports of your sprint, either your back is feeling better or you hooked up with Floyd Landis at the beach.

I like the sign saying there is no smoking on the beach.

Glad to see you value your time - no sense spending the whole day on the bike. So your elapsed time was about 4 hours? Guess BD means Brief Dash. Nice pics.

Think cold MI winters and cool shower while you ride tomorrow... keep safe!

Yo, BD! If you are going to ride that fast, then you might as well go over to Italy (where Lance really is right now) and try to make some money doing it! Don't worry about, the 103 temp tomorrow, I hear it is a dry heat...:)
