    OMG about a few things… 1) your camera 2) that hill. I give you all sorts of credit, not sure I could do that. But, I’m also not an outdoor cyclist either. Way to go 🙂

    I dusted about at least a dozen people on that hill but that thing was a killer!

    We’ll get your bike fixed up tomorrow.

    It’s also worth noting that it became increasingly difficult for me to release my shoes from my pedals. My cleats got damaged from rocks at one of the rest stops. I knew I’d be able to finish the ride but I was concerned about falling over every time I would come to a complete stop.

      I wonder about that when I saw so many people walking on the sand with their shoes. I wonder if their cleats got ruined from sand?

        They got beat up from the rocks at a rest stop.
