Day 1 - Weather and Breaks

The weather today went from breezy and cold (that may have had something to do with the time of day we started) to blue skies and sunny. What a lovely day for a bike ride.

Every few hours Tristan was scheduled for a break. This is when the slave action of the support team gets put to work. He is fed and massaged and drugged (if required....more like anti-inflammatory-ized), map calculations are done, sunscreen rubbed in, snacks prepared, water bottles filled....and after all that, he's back on the road til the next one!

Strike a pose!
