Day 5 started with another early rising, 3:30 AM with departure at 4:20.
This schedule seems to work very well for the cyclists. They are not totally exhausted at the end of their ride, as they usually stop by 9:00 AM. The cooler morning temperatures allowed for a faster ride today as well as covering more miles. They are also building stamina and figuring out what works and what doesn’t. This time frame allows them to capture gorgeous shots of the sunrise.
The SAG Wagon driver set out at 6:30 to provide a water break. WIth the sun in the background, I captured a few “shots” of the GGJV as they passed by my stopping points.
While I wait for the cyclists to arrive at their final stop for the day, I play my violin. The desert creatures all run the other way.
