Cycling Death Valley National Park to Badwater

RV and Bike - Perfect combination

Yesterday I rode into Death Valley. It was one of my hardest rides. It was mostly down hill but the wind was terrible. I can’t ever remember pedaling so I could go down hill! That is how strong the wind was. It was also 84 degrees but cloud cover helped me from over heating. At 26 miles I bonked and had to call Cheryl on the radio (we carry 2-way radios). My legs just couldn’t push the pedals down anymore,┬ábut after a banana and cool water and some truck AC that Cheryl brought me, I got back on the bike and finished my ride to Badwater (lowest point in the US). How could I quit after 26 miles and only 3 more miles to go? My sexy legs still feel like rubber, but I finished the ride (only 29 miles).
