Day 131: Lowell

Very cold start to the day. At 7am the thermometer was reading 0°C (32°F)!

Cycling for me started at 8am and it was not long before my toes were cold and gloves were required to keep fingers from going numb.

However by 10am the Thermometer was in the 80s°F (> 27°C) and in the afternoon it was 100 in the sun and 80 in the shade.

As has often hsppened, last night's map meeting was very simple: Leave the campsite, turn left onto US 12, and cycle (mainly downhill) for 67 miles until you reach mile marker 97.
