June 27th, 2012: On the 26th we rode 27 miles from Lolo Hot Springs to Lolo with an amazing tail wind the whole way. We flew! In Lolo, Adventure Cycling brought us down 5 tubes and saved us a 26 mile ride on the highway into Missoula where they are headquartered. On the 27th as we rode to Hamilton through the Bitterroot Valley, the sun shone and the big skies of Montana surrounded us.
kip and I were pretty proud of ourselves till we met 2 year old Whistler amd his parrnts who were covering 85 miles per day on their cross country trip!
