Update From The Road

Click The Title Of The Post To Comment And Don't Forget To "Subscribe to Endurance Riding" To Stay Updated On My Journey Towards The Tevis Cup!


Asali and I made it to Linda’s house in Rio Linda safely around 8 pm. We got lost after we exited the freeway, but Linda came and rescued us! Linda is a woman I met at my first endurance ride and when she heard I wanted to do the Tevis Cup, she agreed to host me and Asali. Linda has completed the Tevis Cup twice, once in 1995 and then again in 2004. Over the next few days, she is going to take Asali and me out on different parts of the Western States Trail.

Tonight, Linda and I spent some time chatting. She showed me her photo albums, full of endurance pictures and stories. I especially enjoyed the album she had made of her Tevis Cup experience in 2004. Linda shared numerous stories with me and let me in on a bunch of endurance secrets, including who to watch out for on the trail and which well-known endurance riders I should get to know.

Tomorrow we will be riding the last part of the Western States Trail, the part of trail we’ll be riding in the dark when we finally compete in the Tevis Cup.
