Much happier with how I felt during stage 2, compared to 1.
After dinner last night, Chris, Nat (my camping mate), and myself were still craving carbs after dinner.. Which led us to Pescado’s. A local burrito joint that definitely hit the spot
Day 2 started this morning directly across the street from the campground we were staying in. This was super convenient because we could sleep in and roll right to the start a few minutes before go-time.
Today started with 6 miles of road, taking the near 200 riders down the main highway in Pisgah Forest. We were escorted out of town until we hit the dirt road. There has to be a cool pic of the big group of riders out there somewhere
Once onto the dirt road, we climbed for a bit, maybe 20 minutes. Descending into the first single track was the beginning of the most trail of all stages.
Some point during the next hour, I found a rock and decided to fall over on it. Busting my knee up a bit; nothing to stop a ride for
Today’s ride was 2 hours 42 minutes; about a half-hour longer than yesterday’s.
I’m currently posted up at a sketchy laundromat I found in town, trying to fall asleep in the back of project promaster.
Check out this cool video from yesterday’s Stage 1: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6D96gPYugNo&feature=youtu.be
