The Bighorns Loom

The team made its way to Ranchester, Wyoming today, and was able to take in some gorgeous scenery along the way. We biked alongside creeks, open fields and quaint little towns during the 58-mile trek. All the while, the snow-capped Bighorn Mountains lay to the left of us, a constant reminder of the impending days and challenges to come.

Given that today’s ride was on the shorter side, the team had some time to relax along the way and after arriving at the stayover. The predominantly down hill route made for fast biking in the morning, and helped the team make it to Sheridan just in time to take advantage of both the breakfast and lunch menus at McDonalds. After arriving at Tongue River Middle School (our stayover for the night), some I4Kers took a quick dip in a nearby creek in hopes of escaping the 96 degree weather.

In order to prepare for the 18-mile battle up the Bighorns tomorrow, the team loaded up on pasta, lentils, and other healthy foods. We’re prepping our bikes, taking it easy, and heading to bed a little early. Wish us luck!
