Day 33 – Rush Center to Dighton, KS – 63 miles (very windy)
Day 34 – Dighton, KS to Sheridan Lake, CO – 100 miles
Wind is 100 times worst then hills, with hills at least you can see the finish and the downhill payoff. With wind you just suffer through as much as you can until all your energy is sapped. Luckily of our 7 riding days in Kansas we had only one real bad wind day and the rest were mostly in our favor; thank you Kansas and mother nature.
Needless to say we are happy to be out of Kansas and into Colorado, but unfortunately the whole east side of Colorado pretty much looks just like Kansas until we get past Pueblo; just a couple more days.
