Day 31 Viroqua to Madison – 100 Miles – Through the Polar Vortex

19 Jul

day31

Today’s 100-mile ride was pretty cold — we rode through really thick, intense fog.  The temperatures today were really cold, my hands and feet were freezing even though I had 2 long-sleeve shirts and a rain coat, leg warmers and fingerless gloves.  I was chilly starting the day out.

Unseasonably cold for July

It was amazing to ride through such a dense cloud of moisture, you could feel yourself punching through the density of the air as we rode through it.

Riding early in the morning through the dense fog was really exciting. You could feel the density of the air.

The clouds demonstrate how excellent the weather has been on this tour.

The roads we rode on were lush, and quiet – Wisconsin is very leafy and green
