Today is the day! I’m going to reach my goal! Thank you to everyone that has supported me by following the trip, the kind comments, notes, and everything!
I got up nice and early after a day and a half of rest. Started my ride at 6 in the morning in Vaughn, Montana when it was still 45°F outside. Cold! But not windy. 🙂 I’m ready for this.
I started off pretty good, reaching 48 miles before lunch at 10:30am and a second lunch at 2, after 78 miles. There were a couple hills that were pretty huge though. It was rough but gorgeous!
(after 100 miles completed)
When I had done 90 miles, I looked at my watch and saw that it was 4:30pm. I decided to get to the border by 6pm! I booked it after that, not stopping once so I could meet my goal. And I did! My wife passed me about 3 miles before the border and I knew I could do it! I rode through the Canada border at 5:59pm. I did it! Wow. I couldn’t believe it! After a few pictures to document, I stretched out on my yoga mat outside the car and just felt like I was going to be stuck there for a little while. I wasn’t, but I couldn’t believe I did it! I did it!! I originally planned to do 100 miles today, but surpassed it by doing 107. It was a challenge, but well worth it! It was awesome!!!
Stay tuned for my reflection on the trip and future plans.
