Tuesday 22nd May 2012 – Kirkwood to Fallon

Kirkwood to Fallon. 110 miles.

Much easier ride today, I just had about 5 miles of up hill to do first thing this morning and then it’s been downhill nearly all day with a really strong tailwind! Even after 110 miles I still finished well before 5 o’clock! I just hope this wind doesn’t change direction, it would be very difficult to ride against!

The scenery was really spectacular coming down from the Sierra Nevada Hills, think it ranks up with some of the best views I’ve seen on this trip! Seems strange coming down from snow up on the high peaks down to a baron sun scorched earth, the scenery certainly has been varied and that’s just in one day!
