Ellen Visits Nevada For Bike Ride
My bicycle pal Ellen was out in Nevada doing a ride. Looks like her group went through a few tire tubes.
Ellen and her friend Cathy Carlin recently rode in the MS 150 in Las Vegas. Beautiful 96 mile route through the Valley of Fire State Park. Warm up lap on the LV Speedway. Ride goes form 2000 to 3000 feet. 3600 ft of climbing. Second day was 65 miles, 2200 feet of climbing. Ellen says Cathy the ride on a Bike Friday, one of those portable, collapsible bikes.
Only regret was Fed Ex not getting bike back in time for Horrible Hundred. Next year Ellen will bring her bike on the airplane. Maybe by then they will wave the checked luggage fees. Yeah right!
