A brief recap of the third stage for our riders, 181 miles over Gore Pass and Willow Creek Pass to finish in Walden. Another brilliant, sunny day, with a few gusty winds and cumulo-nimbus in the afternoon but generally fine riding!
I was able to see and talk with most of the riders at Willow Creek Pass, who were all smiles (perhaps because they were at the top of the pass). I'll post more of the pictures later. Just a couple here ...
