While you slept, Ray was a busy boy. Climbing over 5000 ft toward Prescott, AZ, after a full day of 100 degree temps in the desert, well that is pretty darn gutsy. It’s 10pm here, and the only folks on this road to Prescott are the riders. And they ALL look tired. But better to climb when the temps are down, than to do that in the heat of the day.

At the last timing station they had a portable pool that riders were allowed to “soak” themselves in. Fully clothed in biking gear, we saw several riders just sitting in the pool to cool off. Hmmm. We shoulda done that!!!

Ride Ray Ride!!!
