Today was a good ride. A long climb for the first 20 miles to the continental divide (unfortunately not marked) and then a long but not too steep descent. I rode with a good group that kept the pace reasonable and kept my tendency to go fast on hills under control. Kathy’s helping a lot coordinating bike repairs with a bike shop in Wyoming and I confirmed that the replacement derailleur shipped! Bozeman is another university town and looks interesting, though we are staying in the outskirts in the cheap motel and fast food district. Today’s ride was 100 miles with 3,500 feet of climbing. Thanks to Jim Miller for the photos immediately above and below this text.
