Day 10
Tehachapi to Boron
49.99 miles

Today we got a little break, downhill all day. We started in Tehachapi and the Tehachapi News met us for a picture.

We had a few miles in the flats and then it was downhill for the rest of the day. We had a strong headwind but we powered through it with gravity in our favor. We completed 18 miles before our first stop and 33 miles before lunch. We cruised into Boron with energy to spare.

Fun Fact: Boron is home to the largest Borax mine in the world.

We will have another trike joining us tomorrow. This is Sam. Sam is getting over a gnarly cold and did not ride today. He will join us with fresh legs tomorrow. We are stoked to have another FA'er on our team.

Don't miss the Greek restaurant in Baker - it's famous. Also the big thermometer. I once stopped there on the way to Vegas; it was after 10 pm and still over 100 degrees, with wind coming off the desert like a blast furnace. Good times.

Yipee! You're on the desert downhill hopefully all the way to Vegas, reading every entry and wishing we were with the Bryant's. Keep up the strong legs and writing, we're living through you guys this trip!

Those Bryant leg's should at least be tan and skinny now!

Glad to hear you're sailing downhill now. Wish I was still there riding with you! (Now that you're downhill :)
