Here I am sat in a McDonald’s in Kingman. We arrived at Kingman yesterday after a 13hr cycle ride in over 100 degrees. Today we are taking the day off to mull over our options.
The weather forecast for the next week is 115 and above, we have a desert crossing with no amenities coming up. Even though we’re stupid this is a pretty scary option.
What to do.
Early starts, but realistically how far can we get before running out of water. And what happens if we get a flat or mechanical problems, what about a headwind and we simply can’t carry on. So many what ifs…
Night riding. How safe is it. You hear stories and all the above on top.
Is it cheating to get a lift.
Is there a train
How about hire a car…
Are we going to be failures if we can’t complete.
What to do
Sleep on it tomorrow’s another day.
