Kirkwood to Lake Tahoe?

30 miles

Approx 07:00 to 13:00hrs

Up more hills today! Well actually we went up 2 hills but they were massive.

It was freezing cold when I opened the tent zip. With this huge drop in temperature – I needed to put my quilted jacket on. But we had planned for this.

After we had some breakfast and packed the tent etc away we were back on the road.

Today’s challenge was another 800 ft to about 8800 at Carsons Pass. Then a huge 6 mile drop before reaching the perimeter of Lake Tahoe. Then 1 more final climb of around 800ft before descending and finally reaching our destination.

Let’s hope things will start to flatten out for a while and give our legs a break. They are really sore and a little swollen.

We managed to drop the bikes off at the Over The Edge bike shop for a check over of our Wiggo and Daisy. The guys at the shop are lovely and even at short notice they were happy to fit us in.

Both Andy and I are tired. We are ready for a break.Thankfully we are now taking 2 days to relax.

Oh yeah we made it to the Nevada state line!
