The Nevada desert


July 29, 2009...

I am pedaling through the Nevada desert. Today I rode from Lovelock to Winnemucca (72 miles).

Two challenges today (besides staying hydrated!):

1. There are no trees in the Nevada desert. Finding shade is only a dream.

2. There was lots of road work, and my tires picked up road tar like you couldn't imagine. Scraping it off every few miles became a challenge in and of itself.

When life gets too "hot," "rest areas" seem non-existent, and "tar" starts impeding your progress, you've been given a chance to show your will and how bad you want your goal.

Rise to the moment.
