Well we did it! One state down and 49 to go!
The adventure started early this morning at our hotel, getting packed, figuring out morning nutrition, and getting to the lobby in time to catch the bus to the fairgrounds. Our morning snack was bananas with peanut butter and Nutella…mmmm. It was a rough morning- we were exhausted last night. I was humming in my sleep 😴💤 haha.
We made our way to the luggage truck to drop off our bags and there were our bike boxes. We were so excited to see them- it was all coming together. Then it was time to head over to the Team BP tent to hang with Ed and Eduardo (HRH of Tacostan). It was a chilly morning (mainly due to the sunburns 🤦🏻♀️) but it warmed up once we got moving. Warm may be an understatement! Thankfully for Skratch Labs we didn’t dehydrate during the ride from sunburn on Saturday and 90degree weather (after cold and snow the week before!) We had a great clip for the day. We crossed the finish line today in 3.5 hours averaging 18 mph. Overall just a great ride.
Saw a CCG VIP jersey, and nonetheless it was Bodil Thomas, a TVR member! Convinced her to come back and ride CCG again this year.
We crossed the finish line, got our gear, took our bikes apart and made it back to Claire’s car (My sister), who also took us to Curra’s (amazing interior Mexican in Austin) and we topped off the night with some post ride treats from Voo Doo Donuts (yolo!)…mmmm old dirty bastard…mmmm (peanut butter Oreo).
Exhausted 💤 tomorrow we head to Mellow Johnny’s then home to Boston. Goodnight
