Today was the most challenging with 30 odd miles of dirt roads followed by 3 hours in rain, sleet and snow. I was not prepared for snow since when I checked the weather forecast this morning it was supposed to be 40-60f along today's route. My times after the first checkpoint will suck since I had to stop for coffee to thaw out my hands. My so called waterproof winter riding gloves were anything but. Enjoying a fire in my own house instead of staying at the hotel with the rest tonight.
