Today was a fun day of meeting friends from Sawyer, KS, along the Transamerica Bicycle Trail. Three different families met us at different times, with children from two of the families waving posters of encouragement.
The weather was very rainy in the morning, but the rain cleared in early afternoon and became a very pleasant day, in spite of a mild headwind most of the day.
Today was a day of excellent weather as I pedaled from Sugar City, CO to Tribune, KS, (115.46 miles according to Strava). I had a tailwind for a while, but had headwinds most of the day. The temperature was perfect… not too hot and not too cold.
Today (Tuesday) was a beautiful day to ride from Canon City, CO, to Sugar City, CO, with very comfortable temperatures and a slight headwind. I arrived safely in Sugar City at 7:15 PM after riding 118.69 miles, according to Strava.
Rebecca and I made it safely to Silverthorne, CO, Saturday evening at about 6:45 PM and met my brother, Laban, and Deanna there. We drove to their house in Denver and enjoyed a rest day on Sunday with them.
Tonight we reached Rand, CO, on schedule! Today was a shorter ride than usual (90.16 miles according to Strava) due to riding an extra 20 miles yesterday.
Day 4 was another very good day, but had a lot of interesting twists and turns.
Today on Day 3, I rode from Dubois, WY, to Jeffrey City, WY, with Strava recording 130.76 miles. The weather varied from sunny and hot to a mild rain (which was quite refreshing) to overcast and quite comfortable.
Today was another wonderful day, with a bit of a shorter ride today of 100.26 miles according to Strava. The weather was sunny and warm, with a low of 63° this morning and a high in the upper 80’s.
Design Outreach’s summer internship program is in full swing. Qinan Zhou and Nick Carlson, DO’s new interns, are working closely with Principal Engineer Naja Robinson and Project Engineer Daniel Wang on several of our current projects, including building the test stand for a fourth-generation gearbox used in LifePump and designing the handle for autoLifePump, to gain some real-world experience in engineering.
