May The Presence of Lord Go With You

It’s Sunday! Arvid was on the road before 5 AM this morning.

You might remember the hymn by Johnson Oatman Jr.: “I’m pressing on the upward way new heights I’m finding every day…”

Once again are watching Arvid climb another long hill.

Arvid finished his ride last night with a very steep incline that slowed him down to 5k/hour. This barely fast enough to keep most of us upright on our bikes.

Terrain is similar to yesterday and weather conditions are excellent for “endurance biking”… cool and overcast.
