Day 12: Redcrest, CA to Leggett, CA

California…sun, beaches, babes, warm weather…one would think.

Today was an excellent display of our commitment to this ride, and to make some ground on the road regardless of the weather.  What was forecasted as a party cloudy day, ended up being a 4 hour push through the pouring rain.  To our advantage, the storm is a southern disturbance, which brings warm temperatures and wind.

The mileage of the day was only around 60 miles, but with the weather is was more than enough….not to mention riding in the rain in Bigfoot country is extremely hazardous.

Highlights of the day were at a minimal, but included; Steiner getting two flat tires, max getting one flat tire (in a torrential downpour of course), socializing with some hitchhiking hobos under a bridge, riding road bikes on dirt roads, and did I mention pedaling in the rain?!?!?

The destination of the day placed us in Leggett, CA at a nice little resort tucked in the Redwoods, where we would dry off our soaked cycling clothes and relax for the big 80-mile day ahead of us to Manchester Bay.
