Rest to Keep The Tour Going

Grand Junction - July 18th

After a difficult journey into Grand Junction I took a day off to rest and get back into cycling shape. I spent the early morning icing and stretching. Then in the afternoon I saw a doctor to insure that I was in good health. My instructions were to drink at least 14 glasses of water and get to bed early. I assure you I gladly complied with both recommendations. It may seem rather mondane but these rest days are absolutely essential to insure that I am able to cycle great distances each day.
