Waking up early and riding for 14hrs is only doable with ❤️ and support from dear family and friends - thanks @lauracatharine@firstname.lastname@example.org For snacks, water and good vibes when I make you wake up at 3:30a on a Saturday! ☺️ #deathride 💀🚲 #tahoe showed me what it means to try harder. I've never ridden more than 85miles in one day, so this was a significant jump over my threshold, not to mention the grueling climbs that Death Ride throws at you, so when climbing Carson Kit pass, I must admit there were moments when I really wanted to throw in the proverbial towel. But the energy of friends, other participants and volunteers kept me going to the last drop of sweat falls off my chin. I came close :)) yesterday I said I'm not doing this ever again, today I'm less convinced.
