At mile 38, we began our climb up Cheaha Mountain to Bunker Tower, the highest point
in Alabama, and then continued down and up to Adam's Gap for the turnaround. At mile
53, we had to climb BACK UP Cheaha Mountain to Bunker Tower from the opposite
direction to head back to the start/finish area. The last 20 miles seemed like it took
FOREVER! I felt like I was pedaling squares! Finally, the finish line was in sight and I
was so happy to see teammates, dismount and sit down while watching for other
teammates and finishers.
Food was provided in an outdoor tent near the finish line and it was SO NICE to be able
to just hang out with other people again, especially with my sisters!!
