No, I am not Batman, but my sidekick for this trip is Robin! Robin and I have become nearly daily riding partners since March. Not too long ago, she decided she was going with me, and once she has made up her mind, it is hard to talk her out of it, so she is going. She’s a strong rider and I will be grateful for her company. I hope she feels the same way!
The last few weeks have been very busy for her; she has basically had to start from scratch to build up her bike and outfit it for the Divide. No obstacle seems to faze her.
She told me today she’s getting nervous, and I take that as a good sign! I have been nervous for weeks. I think Robin is going to do some writing, too – we haven’t figured out the details, but she may post here with me.
OK, back to getting ready! Time is running out!
