Today we crossed into Idaho, waving goodbye to Oregon. In some ways, it seems like we just started with wheel dip in the Pacific Ocean… in other ways, it’s been a long 600 mile journey from a week ago. Without question, Oregon has been a gracious host – beautiful weather, gorgeous scenery, and smooth roads (for the most part).
Lush farmland, grand ranch homes, green golf courses, and sprawling suburbs provided today’s scenery on a mostly flat 65 mile roll into Boise. Noticeably warmer, as temperatures climbed into the 90s. The highlight of the day was an outdoor cafe in the trendy area of Hyde Park. Many riders gathered to hydrate and re-fuel before the last few miles to our hotel in downtown Boise.
Tomorrow is a well-earned rest day for the riders and support crew. It’s also a day for tuning up our bikes, doing laundry and grabbing some supplies. And for tonight – a friendly beer pong tournament to celebrate completion of our first segment across America.
It’s been a great ride, with more to come. ~Dan
