Wake, ride, re­peat. You’ll want to savour this cy­cle, as it’s your last on this trip. Just shy of 28 kilo­me­tres to­day with an­other 1,000 me­tres of el­e­va­tion gain (and then as much el­e­va­tion drop) as your jour­ney through Windy Pass takes you down into El­do­rado Basin and the nal de­scent along the fast, sandy track along Lick Creek. De­pend­ing on the time of year, you may get slowed down by photo- ops among the alpine wildow­ers or wan­der­ing bears or deer. The nal re­ward at the end of your jour­ney at Tyaughton Lake is to make an en­trance, salty from your miles in the sad­dle, through the lobby of Tyax Wilder­ness Re­sort. Trade your spurs for a civ­i­lized drink at the bar and a ses­sion in the spa. You’ve earned it.— Masa Takei
