Hanging in Virginia City,and trying to catch my breath after climbing up Six Mile Canyon. Decided to short cut this way as I got tired of bucking the headwind. One more climb to the top of Geiger Summit then downhill into Reno.
That was hands down the steepest grade I climbed on the entire route! I survived it though. I pedaled over to a gas station and got a bottle of water just so I would have enough to get me down into Reno. Crazy to think after 1,300 miles I am now just an hour or so away from home. I have gone nearly full circle.
