There are not a lot of towns along our route in Utah. That said we were more dependent than ever on our rest stop support. To make it worst we had our second triple digit temperature ride and again we went into safe riding mode to ensure all riders were taken care of. Our rest stops were at picnic areas and county line road areas, but one was at the only service town of the day, Hanksville. This town has a population of 219 but has great hamburger place which has the greatest milk shakes. This meal helped us with the last 22 miles of 103 degree temperature and a strong head wind. Even though we had filled our water bottles in Hanksville we were glad to see the support van so we could get additional water for the final 3 miles.
Tonight everyone is staying in a hotel. What a great treat.
