The Blind Ride – Day 3 Check in

Scot "Scoob" Schmidt & Mike Armstrong at mile 98We had another successful journey today. We started our day with a news interview and an emergency stop for extra bike tubes.  This delayed us from starting our ride until 10:30 am.

I-8 was far smoother than I-10 however this did not stop us from getting a leak in the Van’s tire and a total blow out on the tandem’s back tire. This delayed us another 2 hours.

In spite of these challenges we were able to finish our day at 103 miles at 6:30 pm. Although we are all pretty sore except for  our support driver Ben (who keeps complaining about his right calf) we are looking forward to finishing up The Blind Ride tomorrow afternoon.

Special thanks to America’s Choice Inn in Gila Bend for hooking us up with 3 rooms for the night.
